The Railway Man: Monday: April 28 2014
This is quite a story of unbelievable horror in the shape of the infamous Burmese Railway built by the Japanese, using British prisoners-of-war, during the Second World War. Set against that background we have the story of healing, forgiveness, and redemption. This takes place within both the British soldier and his Japanese captor. It could be seen as symbolic of what has happened between the two nations over time. Not a light, entertaining film, it leaves one with a good feeling about, and hope for, the human race.
