This Japanese prisoner-of-war camp film from the controversial director Nagisa Oshima is something of a mixed bag. On the negative side are two not especially good performances from two pop stars, David Bowie and Ryuichi Sakamoto, while making up for this are terrific turns from Tom Conti, as the eponymous POW Mr Lawrence, and Takeshi Kitano as the brutal guard who gets to deliver the film's title, and who in real life went on to become one of Japan's greatest film-makers.
A young writer in New York gets drawn into an intense friendship with a fragile, haunted Polish war survivor and her volatile lover.
