The action scenes were practically non existant, and basically the only action I really saw was when they were fleeing after yet another of the men were picked off by the Comanche. Not to say this was bad, I was just not used to this kind of western versus Eastwood's classic spaghetti western

According to IMDB, the cast was fed to a minimum and were forbidden from looking after their personal hygiene. They only had the aid of nurses. However, actor Eiji Funakoshi (Tamura) was never told not to eat. It was his decision to starve himself without anybody knowing about it... until he collapsed. Production was shut down for 2 weeks.If The Burmese Harp (1956) was Ichikawa's humanism testament, Nobi acts as a counterpart of dehumanization, anxiety, fear, madness, cannibalism and delusions. It achieves to be tense and psychologically disturbing, but it also manages to go even one step forward, placing Tamura as a character on his final stage of tuberculosis, slowly losing his humanity, but internally struggling to keep his sanity and adhering himself to his principles before he loses all connection with reality. The constant voiceover proves this struggle to be true. Hence, we have a powerful film that, despite some brief parenthetical digressions, never loses track of its course and offers the challenge to its audiences of making a decision: whether to empathize with the madness of the characters or not. I chose to do so, because I am pretty sure that this hellish psychological war-induced claustrophobia can only be understood by people that have tasted and smelled the battlefield and seen the repercussions in their comrades.I am praying that none of us here present are given a chance to prove whether if the depiction was accurate or not. Ichikawa always considered the quality of his original WWII-themed sources for the purposes of film adaptation. I trust him.94/100P.S. This is one of those movies that slowly grows in you and shouldn't be rated immediately.
