The Bridge on the River Kwai Reviews
From the great performances to smooth directing, The Bridge on the River Kwai is a WWII classic.
D: David Lean. William Holden, William Holden, Sessue Hayakawa, Jack Hawkins, James Donald. Deliciously rollicking action adventure movie about POW camp forced to build bridge and American officer Guinness (under Japanese supervision) who ends up taking charge! Chemistry between Guinness and Hayakawa is probably the best in screen history; ironic denouement is another triumph. This won many Oscars and some have picked this as the best American movie of the 1950s.

A movie that showers complex emotions and questions at the audience only to unsuccessfully answer it all with patriotism rather than sticking on to Col. Nicholson's views. The film is satirical at most times and also proves to be one of the best American films about Non-Americans, yet for the ending, I shall have to stick on to the view of the physician- "Madness".
