Synopsis

War isn't just about physical combat - it also has a profound psychological and spiritual impact. This star-filled World War II drama delivers a haunting meditation on the hell of conflict, charting the experiences of a US army platoon struggling against Japanese forces on the South Pacific island of Guadalcanal. Events are shown from a cross-section of perspectives, from the non-conformist Private Witt to the power-hungry Lieutenant Colonel Tall. The bloody action is secondary to the soldiers' internal conflict, as they fight to preserve not only their lives but also their sanity.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
