To cast away everything, surrendering yourself to the flow of nature and just sitting in meditation: this is the essence of Dogen's Zen Buddhism. In the 13th century, Dogen, a young Japanese monk, traveled to China, determined to find his true master. There he found a monk who taught him that sitting in Zen meditation is the true and only path to enlightenment. Returning enlightened to Japan, Dogen risked his life to pioneer Zen Buddhism, inspiring the millions of Zen Buddhists who practice around the world today
Dai Nihon Teikoku ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Because of the title of the film -- "The Great Japanese Empire" -- and the use of the wartime prime minister Tōjō Hideki as one of the main characters, before the film was completed there was an outcry against its release (Cf. information on Amazon.co.jp). The movie depicts the beginning and end of the Pacific War, with scenes of the attack on Pearl Harbour and the battles of Singapore and Saipan. The Japanese empire is shown at its brief apex with the occupation of Southeast Asia and its rapid decline with the Battle of Midway, ending with the war crime trials in Tokyo and Southeast Asia. Loyalty, comradeship, love and the human condition on the battlefields are all intertwined. The question of responsibility is brought forward as well. The final scene is the reunion of the returning soldier Aoi Teruhiko with his desperate wife Sekine Keiko and their young son on a beach in Japan, perhaps hinting a hope of the future. The film makes two references to the Chinese fighters -- a woman volunteer soldier in Malaya and a fighter pilot over Shanghai -- in an empathetic manner
