Movie Moment

After recently watching (and being extremely moved) by Kon Ichikawa's "The Burmese Harp", here's a few minutes from the film. Not only is it a grand and humane presentation of World War 2, but it features one of the most moving soundtracks I could imagine in a film. Scored by Akira Ifukube, his magical compositions (sampled lightly in the above clip) provide heart-rendering overtures to the subtle emotions on screen. Rent this Criterion disc right away.
