Sandakan No.8' Full Version DVD, Kei Kumai (1974), New & Sealed.
Despite the subject matter, this is one of the most physically beautiful films I've ever seen. A difficult story to watch at times and some of the symbolism was a little overdone, but a well crafted movie with great attention to camera angle, set dressing, and - above all - the cinematography. A really stunning work...
