Letters from Iwo Jima‬ (2006)

Where Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers focused on the oft-told story of American soldiers in the Second World War, this companion piece shifted the focus onto their enemies in the Imperial Japanese Army. Ken Watanabe plays General Kuribayashi, who sticks to his duty of defending the Japanese homeland in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Definitely the superior of the two films in Eastwood's Second World War diptych.
