Life and Death on the Shore


In 1944, at the end of World War II, Uchida was a primary school teacher on one of the Uchiba Islands. There were several naval special garrisons, and Lieutenant Shaku was a newcomer to the island. After meeting Uchida several times, she felt very attracted to her. At the same time, she was interested in his learning and singing these island songs. Gradually they fell in love. However, her deep love for the lieutenant tortured her because an endless war would force Shaku to leave the island one day to fight elsewhere - this film is based on the novelist Hideo Mizuo, co-authored by his wife Shioya Miho. The film is based on her two novels "Koniec Island" and "Life and Death by the Sea".... Show more


I have watched this movie once again today and this movie is really amazing. Definitive example of 10/10 movie. Life and Death on the Shore is a long movie, with the space to expand and explore all it's features. I was afraid that knowledge of the plot would in some way take away the joy of watching, but it did not happen. The amount of details and little aspects of the movie that you can find years and years later is absolutely amazing. Whoever has not seen let it rush in front of the TV, because this movie just has to be seen. There is no place like this website with free movie online so I uploaded this full film here....
