The year is 1943, and in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in Burma, the British and American inmates are forced to do brutal hard labour by their captors, constructing a vast railway bridge. Colonel Nicholson, the senior British officer, decides his duty is to build the best bridge he can, even though it would help the enemy troop movements. As much as a classic war film, The Bridge On The River Kwai is an examination of obsession and stubborn pride.
