Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence was the first English-language project of Japanese director Nagisa Oshima (Death by Hanging, In the Realm of the Senses). In tune with his previous filmic essays on racism and brutality, Merry Christmas concentrates on a war of wills between rebellious POW Major Jack Celliers (David Bowie) and camp commandant Captain Yonoi (Ryuichi Sakomoto). Assuming that his other prisoners' unwillingness to protest their cruel treatment is a sign of weakness, Yonoi is most impressed by Celliers' enigmatic defiance. While Celliers and Yonoi seem to be operating on a high spiritual and intellectual plane, bilingual prisoner Colonel John Lawrence (Tom Conti) (the "Mr. Lawrence" of the title) engages in a more standard adversarial relationship with sadistic Sergeant Gengo Hara (Takeshi Kitano).
