O filmu:
The Bridge on the River Kwai is a 1957 British World War II film by David Lean based on the novel The Bridge over the River Kwai by French writer Pierre Boulle. The film is a work of fiction but borrows the construction of the Burma Railway in 1942–43 for its historical setting. It stars William Holden, Alec Guinness, Jack Hawkins, and Sessue Hayakawa. In 1997, this film was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected for preservation in the United States Library of Congress National Film Registry.

Plot:
The film deals with the situation of British prisoners of war during World War II who are ordered to build a bridge to accommodate the Burma-Siam railway. Their instinct is to sabotage the bridge but, under the leadership of Colonel Nicholson, they are persuaded that the bridge should be constructed as a symbol of British morale, spirit and dignity in adverse circumstances. At first, the prisoners admire Nicholson when he bravely endures torture rather than compromise his principles for the benefit of the Japanese commandant Saito. He is an honorable but arrogant man, who is slowly revealed to be a deluded obsessive. He convinces himself that the bridge is a monument to British character, but actually is a monument to himself, and his insistence on its construction becomes a subtle form of collaboration with the enemy. Unknown to him, the Allies have sent a mission into the jungle, led by Warden and an American, Shears, to blow up the bridge.

Film je stvarno predivan. Od pocetka do kraja.

Ironija je sto covjek koji je zapravo osmislio gradnju cijelog mosta ga digne u zrak, ali svejedno, they needed to build a propper bridge :zubifale:

Voljela sam ga kao klinka, sad se pola toga zaboravilo.

Sam ću ukratko spomenuti, iako film ne smatram nekim uber najboljim remek djelom ikada, je ovo još jedan od dokaza zašto je 1957 možda bila najjača godina za film općenito.

Silver-tight like spider legs
I never wanted it to ever spoil,
But flies will lay their eggs...

The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) - zasluženo epski klasik. Alec Guinness jedna od uloga karijere. Kako mu je lik samo rastao kroz film, toliko rastao i toliko se uživio u gradnju mosta da više nije znao što se događa na kraju, a kraj je prava bomba :zubifale: odlično režirano i odglumljeno. Prva polovica potpuno drugačija od druge. U drugoj više pratimo Williama Holdena.
