Nihonkai daikaisen (Battle of the Japan Sea)
This extravagant Japanese docudrama recounts the conflict between Japan and Russia during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05. The film was produced by actor Toshiro Mifune, who narrated the original Japanese print and starred as Admiral Heihachiro Togo. Throughout the film's methodically paced 120 minutes, newsreel footage is deftly combined with reenactments. Though by its very nature a violent film, the English-language version of Battle of the Japan Sea is rated G. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
