Yesterday's Enemy DVD (Region 1) Widescreen. B&W. Stanley Baker, Guy Rolfe, Leo McKern.
A profound and disturbing WW II film classic which focuses on the survivors of a battle-decimated brigade as they try to make their way through the Burmese jungle to rejoin the main British force. Led by Captain Langford, the survivors come upon a village where they surprise a small Japanese detachment. Found on a dead Japanese colonel is a coded map that details future Japanese battle strategy. Langford interrogates a captured Burmese agent, demanding an explanation of the code. The prisoner refuses to talk, so Baker carries through a threat you won't soon forget. What follows is devastating. An unflinching look at the effects of war on the human psyche.
