What it's about
Some men make a bridge.
What I thought
I really liked the theme tune and Alec Guinness.
What Mum thought
Mum had seen this one before. "Great performances from Holden and Guinness, not forgetting Hayakawa. Beautifully filmed, its only flaw is to claim to be a portrayal of true events."
What Dad thought
Dad had seen this one before. "This is another awesome film! I've loved this film since i watched it as a child. Guinness performance is exemplary as the stiff upper lipped officer who bargains with nothing and wins concessions from the Japanese officer in charge of the camp.
Guinness's characters pride in the bridge grows as it becomes a symbol for one of the few things that he can actually control.
Great film, great acting and an awesome ending. "
