The Bridge on the River Kwai
Year: 1957

Rating: (8.2)
Country: UK / USA
Runtime: 161 min.
Director: David Lean
Studio: Horizon Pictures (II)
Cast: William Holden / Alec Guinness / Jack Hawkins / Sessue Hayakawa / James Donald / Geoffrey Horne / André Morell / Percy Herbert / Harold Goodwin / Ann Sears / Peter Williams / John Boxer / Heihachirô Ôkawa / Keiichirô Katsumoto / M.R.B. Chakrabandhu
Plot:
This movie deals with the situation of British prisoners of war during World War II who are ordered to build a bridge to accommodate the Burma-Siam railway. Their instinct is to sabotage the bridge, but under the leadership of Colonel Nicholson, they are persuaded that the bridge should be constructed as a symbol of British morale, spirit, and dignity in adverse circumstances. At first, the prisoners admire Nicholson when he bravely endures torture rather than compromise his principles for the benefit of the Japanese Commandant Saito. He is an honorable, but arrogant man, who is slowly revealed to be a deluded, obsessive man. He convinces himself that the bridge is a monument to British character, but actually is a monument to himself, and his insistence on its construction becomes a subtle form of collaboration with the enemy. Unknown to him, the Allies have sent a mission into the jungle, led by Warden and an American, Shears, to blow up the bridge.
