          In the crucible of war, men can kill without remorse. But the pressures of violence can also foster a bond between enemies even between captive and jailer until the lines of their conflict are obscured. So it is for Lieutenant-Colonel John Lawrence (Tom Conti), a British officer ...fluent in Japanese language and culture, tolerated by his captors and resented by his fellow prisoners. The precarious truce between the two sides becomes unsettled when headstrong and indomitable Major Celliers (David Bowie) enters the camp and the Japanese immediately set out to break him. Lawrence is drawn into the battle of wills as the conditions for the prisoners worsen and both he and Celliers become the target for punishment and torture culminating in the sadistic Sgt. Hara (Takeshi) offering Lawrence a 'Christmas present'.

          Following on the great tradition of Forty Thousand Horsemen, Charles Chauvels 1944 cinematic account of the Battle of Rommel is a tour de force of Australian film making, telling the story of three courageous men who join the Australian Imperial Force at the beginning of WWII. Wh...en war breaks out, tough-as-leather drover Bluey (Grant Taylor, On The Beach), dingo trapper Milo (Chips Rafferty, Smiley) and English gent Peter (Oscar winner Peter Finch, Network) ship out to Africa, ready for adventure. Destined to serve in the North Africa campaign in the 9th Division they become involved in the siege of Tobruk, holding up the advance of Rommel's forces for months. Beleaguered and battle weary the friends fight on, proving to be a considerable challenge to the enemy and a boon to the Allied war effort. Also featuring George Wallace and Joe Valli, Chauvels bold tale of war gives life to the many heroic tales of mateship during WWII. Fully restored and presented in a brand new transfer, The Rats of Tobruk is a rousing tribute to the many brave the soldiers who served their nation.
