AUTOGRAPHED AND INSCRIBED Region 2 Italian DVD edition of Andrey Iskanov’s most infamous film, Philosophy of a Knife. Only one in stock
Philosophy of a Knife tells the true history of the infamous Japanese Unit 731, the covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army. The film is a complete history of the unit from its beginnings in the 1930s to its demise in 1945, and the subsequent trials in Khabarovsk, USSR, of many of the Japanese doctors and soldiers responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes ever perpetrated.
The facts are told, and previously unknown evidence is revealed by an eyewitness to these events, former doctor and military translator, Anatoly Protasov. Part documentary and part feature, the story is shown from the perspective of a young Japanese nurse who witnessed many of horrors, and a young Japanese officer who is torn between his sincere convictions that he is serving the greater purpose, and the deep sympathy he feels for an imprisoned Russian girl. His life is a living hell as he’s compelled to carry out atrocious experiments on the other prisoners, using them as guinea pigs in this shocking tale of mankind’s barbarity. Philosophy of a Knife is truly one of the most violent, brutal and harrowing movies ever made.
Includes Italian and English Subtitles.
