A soldier wades in a river in his boxer shorts, and walks out to get to his clothes.
The soldiers play cards with half-dressed women posing on the backs.
There are a few crude sexual references.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


As a Chinese, Lao Wu made this film before he found out the profound contradictions of American race. No wonder it will become his personal Waterloo work.

Think of another similar story, the 442 infantry regiment of the United States during World War II. After the Pearl Harbor incident, the Anti Japanese sentiment in the United States rose, which led it to do something that violated its founding philosophy, that is, the imprisonment of Japanese Americans in its own country. This 442 infantry regiment is a force composed of Japanese Americans to prove their loyalty to the country. When these soldiers set foot on the land of North Africa to fight for the United States, their relatives still live in the “resettlement center” of the United States, which is actually a concentration camp, and many of their own people have just come out of there.

Therefore, we can imagine the position of this force in the fraternal forces of the United States, but it is such a force that has won the most medals and the largest number of casualties in the military history of the United States.

After the war, in the Truman Era and the Bush era, there were compensatory bills passed for this historical event. However, many Americans do not know much about this history, and this legendary history has hardly been put on the screen.

Gao Xiaosong also mentioned this history in his program. He said he had asked many Hollywood producers why they didn’t shoot this subject. The response was very consistent: “who will see it?” American people will not see it because it is too contradictory to their wasp mainstream ideology. No one is willing to face this uncoordinated stroke in the most glorious history of World War II in the history of American war; Once a film about the civil war was sealed in Colombia’s inventory forever because it mentioned that there were black soldiers in the Confederate army, and there was no chance to be released once.

Taking this as an example, a film about the Indian aborigines who served the country while receiving unfair treatment during World War II, and a film about the sacrifice of individual lives in the face of national interests in the era of war, A film that said “we fight and die with them on the battlefield today, and maybe our future generations will drink face to face with these Japanese in 50 years” is naturally unpopular in the American market, although he moved me very much.
