TO END ALL WARS
( 2001 )
DIRECTED BY : David L. Cunningham
A true life story of extreme endurance, survival and redemption, as a disparate band of battle-weary world war II allied soldiers are plunged into the brutal terror of a japanese pow camp.
Based on the memoirs of Scots Captain Ernest Gordon "To end all wars" tells of the rival values and split loyalties of a group of men kept in a state of hunger and fear, amid the permanent stench of death and disease forced to build a raildroad through the forbidding jungles of Burma-Siam. The men are driven to revenge, escape and self-preservation. Ultimately, though, only by reclaiming hope and dignity are they able to slowly uncover the carcks in their captors.
