Critic Reviews for A Town Like Alice (Rape of Malaya)
An engaging historic romance in which the romantic relationship is the least successful thing about the movie.
Audience Reviews for A Town Like Alice (Rape of Malaya)
Love the book, love the mini-series, but the two-hour movie just leaves out too much to be exceptional.
When I saw the Bryan Brown version of this film, maybe 20 years ago or more, I never considered the possibility that it was a remake of the original. When I stumbled across the original the other night, I could not quite believe that it might be the same movie. Well, it is, and the original is outstanding. I am really feeling as if I've discovered a great find in Virginia McKenna. Two in a row, baby. What a treat. Another truly original look at the effects of World War II.
Based on a novel by Neville Shute, and real events, this is a story of women and children made to do a "death march" in Japanese occupied Malaya during world war II. Helped by an Australian POW, who got severly punished and almost died for his "crime." Well acted, and well paced, and good cinematography.
