No Regrets for Our Youth

No Regrets for Our Youth

About

Japan's defeat in World War II prompted soul-searching on a national scale. Kurosawa explores the maze of shame, honour, tragedy and pride, and the curious stigma attached to those who denounced the country's involvement in the war. As Japan enters the conflict, student Hara is torn between Kono, a pragmatist and supporter of military involvement, and Fujita, a fearless anti-war activist. She plumps for Fujita, but only discovers the depths of his anti-war activity when he is executed for espionage.
