I'm deeply fascinated with the ins and outs of the Second World War and this movie presents a perspective on it that has never been exposed to me: a normal, Christian Japanese family, who has open relationships with Westerners, but has to do anything to survive in their home country during WWII. The son of the family becomes the center of the story. Thoroughly a great cinema experience.
