I didn't love the film, I thought it was alright. I'm typically not a fan of Japanese melodramatics, and while I wouldn't consider this film to be a melodrama, a few scenes were close to that (and a few were also a little bit on the exploitation side, but not enough for me to consider this to be an exploitation film). I did enjoy how the film portrayed the war. The film wasn't afraid to discuss propaganda efforts that were in effect during the war. 7/10
