Synopsis / Plot
Shingun, is a rare example of a truly large-scale production from Japan's silent cinema and remains a powerful, engrossing film. A war spectacle directly influenced by The Big Parade and Wings, it is a modern heroic epic with reverberations in 20th century Japanese history, a well-constructed narrative expertly blending humor, romance, adventure, and social commentary.
