Synopsis

The first important Japanese war film (the genre did not exist as such before Japan’s war with China), Five Scouts already differed from the expectations of a war film, coming far closer in spirit to two pacifist films inspired by World War I, All Quiet on the Western Front and Westfront 1918.
