Abstract

Loosly based on a true story, this film explores Japanese holdouts from World War II living on the abandoned-and-forgotten Pacific island of Anatahan. A group of 12 sailors are stranded on the island for seven years.  The island's only inhabitants are the overseer of the abandoned plantation and Keiko, an attractive young Japanese woman.The soldiers vie for the affection of Keiko that slowly causes the disintegration of military discipline and Japanese tradition. Director Josef von Sternberg presents the drama as a detached documentary and a warning about the power of female sexuality.
