    Apparently not, because the film I watched last night re: POWs of the Japanese was called Paradise Road!

    Which one was it? The choice is yours!

    This drama from director Bruce Beresford about a Japanese PoW camp for women in hot and sticky Sumatra covers similar physical and emotional terrain as the 1980s BBC series Tenko. Unfortunately, it has some glaring weaknesses - everyone is too well-nourished and too neatly made-up, and the tone threatens to become syrupy when the women form a vocal ensemble in order to pass the time and raise morale. But the movie has an undeniable integrity and an outstandingly good cast: Glenn Close (as a sort of Miss Bossy Boots) and Pauline Collins take the major roles, but watch out for a scene-stealing performance from Frances McDormand as a German doctor and Cate Blanchett in her first major movie.
