About this movie

Academy Award® winner* Clint Eastwood directs the untold story of Japanese soldiers defending their homeland against invading American forces during World War II. With little defense beyond sheer will and the terrain of Iwo Jima itself, the tactics of General Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe of The Last Samurai) and his men transform what might have been swift defeat into nearly 40 days of heroic combat. Their sacrifices, struggles, courage and compassion live on in the taut, gripping film Rolling Stone calls "unique and unforgettable" and which won -- among 4 Academy Award nominations* including Best Picture -- the Oscar for Best Sound Editing (2006). MPAA Rating: R Rated "R" by the MPAA for graphic war violence. © 2006 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. and Dream Works LLC. All Rights Reserved.

La historia de la oficialidad y tropa del imperio del Japón en esas islas que se hicieron masacrar en su empeño por defender el bastion por el ejército de EE UU y en donde se obtuvo la famosa toma de los marines subiendo la bandera en el Monte Suribashi. Muy buen film de Clint Eastwood. (Cine bélico histórico)

It is very rare you get to see WW2 from the Japanese perspective. It is also difficult to understand their ideology from western morals. Driven by fanatical beliefs until the end. But this film brought so much human elements that for me is one of the best historically-based war movies in modern times.
