The sexually charged hatred between prisoner (Bowie) and commandant (Sakamoto) in a 1942 prisoner-of-war camp in Java is the main string to this lengthy character study, which is atmospheric, but not as original as it attempts to be. Bowie is pretty good by his standards, which is not saying a lot.
