Win Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence on Blu-ray
To celebrate the release of Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence – available on limited edition Blu-ray from 15th June from Arrow Academy – The Upcoming has a copy up for grabs!
David Bowie stars in Nagisa Oshima’s 1983 Palme d’Or-nominated portrait of resilience, pride, friendship and obsession among four very different men confined in the stifling jungle heat of a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in Java during World War II.
Produced by Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor, The Sheltering Sky), it was the first English-language film by Oshima (Death by Hanging, In the Realm of the Senses, Gohatto), a leading light of Japanese New Wave cinema, and provided breakthrough big-screen roles for comedian and director Takeshi Kitano and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, who also composed the film’s hauntingly memorable BAFTA-winning score. This powerful wartime drama was adapted from Laurens van der Post’s autobiographical novel The Seed and the Sower (1963) by screenwriter Paul Mayersberg (The Man Who Fell to Earth).
