Product Description

103 kochi (1980)


 Toshio Masuda


 Kazuo Kasahara


 Tatsuya Nakadai, Teruhiko Aoi, Toshirô Mifune
It depicts, generally, the "glorious" battle for Hill 203 during the Russo-Japanese war in 1905. The hill was eventually captured at stupendous loss of life on both the Japanese and Russian sides. The capture of the hill enabled the Japanese army to put pressure on the Russian pacific fleet, thus securing the Japanese victory together with Admiral Togo's "lucky" win in the coming naval battle.  The movie is sometimes quite heavy, complete with thick pancake make up even in close-ups and stunningly unrealistic beards. The fighting scenes are full of hands thrown up in the air and death cries, ketchup blood and people yelling banzai.

  1. Moving war drama 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 7th 2015

    warning: in Japanese and a little Russian without subtitles. That said, this film does a first rate job of showing the Russo-Japanese War of 1900 from the point of view of Japan both at the front (a scary preview of World War I) and on the home islands. No intelligent person will have any trouble following the bulk of this very moving story.
