MERRY CHRISTMAS MR LAWRENCE

MERRY CHRISTMAS MR LAWRENCE

MERRY CHRISTMAS MR LAWRENCE screens at BFI Southbank (18 FEB 20:20):

Based on Sir Laurens van der Post’s experiences as a POW in WWII Japan, MERRY CHRISTMAS MR LAWRENCE depicts a battle of wills between an imprisoned officer and his Japanese counterpart who pushes him to a point of no return. Of particular note are the arresting performances of Bowie and Sakamoto – who not only played the role of the conflicted Captain Yonoi but also composed a beautiful and moving score for the picture.
