2 DVDs. Two sides of history.
DISC ONE: 'FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS.'
On the frontline, there's no time for fear. For 70,000 marines who fought with bombs blasting and guns blazing, the bloody battle for Iwo Jima was more than the turning point of World War II; it was the defining moment in their lives.
In the epic that "The New York Times" calls " a sweeping spectacle," Academy Award winning director Clint Eastwood taps into the single greatest emotional truth of warfare: soldiers may fight for their country, but they die for their friends. Hailed by critics as "a film of awesome power and blistering provocation, an amazing feat" (Peter Travers, "Rolling Stone"). 'Flags Of Our Fathers' is a powerful true story of heroism and bravery that should be shared and remembered.
DISC TWO: 'LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA.'
4 Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Winner of the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture in a Foreign Language.
Academy Award winning director Clint Eastwood comes the untold story of the Japanese solders who defended their homeland against invading American forces during World War II. With little defence other than sheer will and the volcanic rock of Iwo Jims itself, the unprecedented tactics of General Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanbe, 'The Last Samurai') and his men transform what was predicted to be a swift defeat into nearly 40 days of heroic and resourceful combat. Their sacrifices, struggles, courage and compassion live in in the taut, gripping film "Rolling Stone" calls "unique and unforgettable."
