ビルマの竪琴 (The Burmese Harp) - Japan, Kon Ichikawa, 1956

In this stirring anti-war film (one of lchikawa's best-known), a World War II musician soldier disappears at the end of the Burma campaign. He is never found, but his comrades think they recognise him in a harp-playing monk who has devoted his life to burying the unknown war dead.

In Japanese, with English subtitles.
