Overview
Een tijdloos verhaal over de zinloosheid van oorlog... In de Tweede Wereldoorlog moeten Britse krijgsgevangenen een brug bouwen voor de Japanse overheersers in Birma. Ze moeten stand bieden aan de ontberingen van de gewetenloze Japanse officieren, de genadeloze weersomstandigheden, maar bovenal ook de plannen van de geallieerde troepen die de brug uit strategisch oogpunt willen vernietigen.

De meest spectaculaire en onvergetelijke film over psychologische oorlogsvoering, doorzettingsvermogen en strijd is nu verkrijgbaar op DVD. Met natuurlijk het bekendste 'fluit'liedje ter wereld: "Colonel Bogey March".
