Soundtrack: Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

Coming in at #85 (EW's) is Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, 1983. The movie stars David Bowie, Tom Conti and Ryuichi Sakamoto. I have a vague recollection of this movie. As it is set during WWII  I am pretty sure my father watched it so that means I probably watched it. And from what I read about this movie - David Bowie did some pretty powerful acting. Now I am really curious.

I tried finding some songs or the entire soundtrack but had difficulty locating it. I did catch a glimpse of one instrumental songs and it was beautiful - haunting almost. However, I couldn't find anymore.

Now I must go phone my father to see if he heard of this and get his thoughts.

Have a good weekend, everyone!!

I remember watching this film when I was 10 and then later twice when I was 15. It always haunted me, the final scenes of his burial & death and when the Japanese captain comes in the night to cut off a lock of his hair.
