THIS is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time. I don't know how many times I've seen it, but I also own it too. It will never get old for me. I actually adore Marlon Brando and Glenn Ford. Dreamy...
would categorize this movie as a comedy. There is so much comedic wit
and troubles. But this movie also offers love and admiration for the
Japanese people. Being 1/4 Japanese, I have a thing for movies set in
Japan. (Check out Sayonara. Another Marlon Brando film.) This is
also a war movie; I find films with a
historical background so much more interesting.
Set in Okinawa, a captain must enforce the new way of living planned out for the islanders by the US government. Many unexpected events get in the way of this plan, such as a geisha, a distillery, and an obsessed vegetable grower. As I write this description of the movie, I realize how crazy this all sounds. haha. It is worth the time!
Check back in and let me know what you think of it!
I would love to chat about it!
