The Bridge on the River Kwai

David Lean Großbritannien, 1957

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Die Brücke am Kwai

People remember "Bridge" so much as one of the great adventure movies—which it is—that they forget how much is going on here: a tension between opposing code-bound militaries that end up sharing the same goal, with Our Hero (William Holden) wanting nothing more than to get out. Of course, the tragedy is that in the end, he becomes equally obsessed with seeing his mission through. Much like the audience. 5 stars.
