Shot almost entirely from inside the tank in which they are travelling, the film follows the soldiers as they attempt to clear an area of hostile fighters while suffering from the multiple stresses of combat.
Yoav Donat, Itay Tiran, Oshri Cohen and Michael Moshonov star. 'Saints and Soldiers' (2003) is set in Belgium in December 1944, where German troops open fire on unarmed American prisoners of war in what would be dubbed the Malmedy Massacre.
A stranded R.A.F. pilot, Oberon Winley (Kirby Heyborne), holds the key to German intelligence which could prevent further atrocities, but can the Americans help free him from his perilous position behind enemy lines? 'Assault On the Pacific: Kamikaze' (2007) is a Japanese World War II drama about a squadron of Kamikaze pilots fighting in the Pacific.
The film follows the training and final moments in the lives of the young pilots as they bid farewell to their families and girlfriends and prepare to embark on their suicidal missions against the US Navy over the Pacific Ocean.
Toru Emori and Katsutaka Furuhata star.
