Brotherhood / 9th Company / Intimate enemies 15

£13.99

Product description

Triple bill of war films. Disc cases still sealed, card box set in good condition.

'Brotherhood' (2004) is a Korean picture set in Seoul in 1950. Jin-seok (Won Bin) and his older brother Jin-tae (Jang Dong-kun) run though the streets of their hometown, without a care in the world. They have clothes on their backs, food on the table, and a loving family. The brothers live with their mother, their much younger siblings, and Jin-tae's soon-to-be wife Young-shin (Lee Eun-joo). This tranquil existence is shattered when war breaks out. North Korea has invaded, and the family is forced to abandon its home. While making their way to safer ground, they are intercepted by soldiers and Jin-seok is taken into custody. All men capable of carrying arms must report for duty. Jin-tae tries to free his brother, but he too is captured. Both siblings suddenly find themselves on an army train, heading straight to the war's front line. With southern forces failing to halt the Communist north's advance, Jin-tae organises a tight-knit group of conscripts and orchestrates a daring isolated attack. Earning the respect of the men and his superiors with each increasingly suicidal mission, Jin-tae is promised to be awarded the Medal Of Honour that will enable him to demand Jin-seok be sent home.

'9th Company' (2005) is a Finnish military drama based on real-life events. The film recounts a year in the lives of a group of young soldiers recruited to serve in Afghanistan for the final year of the Soviet conflict there. It is the poignant story of the unit's dedication to both its country and to each other during its final valiant defence of the Height 3234, a futile battle that ravaged the forgotten company who fought on, unaware the war had ended.

'Intimate Enemies' (2007) is a French film set during the Algerian war of independence in 1959. Terrien (Benoit Magimel), an idealistic French lieutenant, has been posted to the mountains of Kabylia to take over the command of a platoon at an army outpost. Here he meets Dougnac (Albert Dupontel), a jaded sergeant. Their differences, and the brutal realities of combat, soon drive them to bitter enmity. Amidst the savagery of an undeclared war, the two men come to realise that their worst enemy is themselves.
