Plot

Cpl. Mizushima, a Japanese soldier, becomes the harp player of Captain Inouye’s group, comprised of soldiers who fight and sing to raise moral. When they are offered shelter in a village, they eventually realize they are being watched by British soldiers.

At a camp the soldiers are asked for a volunteer to talk down a group of soldiers who are still fighting on a mountain. Mizushima volunteers and is told he has 30 minutes to tell them to surrender. At the mountain he is almost shot down before they realize he is Japanese. He climbs up safely and asks to speak to whoever is in command. Meeting their commander he informs him that the war has ended and they should surrender. The commander says he shall talk to the other soldiers, and they come out minutes later stating that unanimously they decided to fight to the end. Mizushima begs for them to surrender but they do nothing. He decides to ask for more time from the British, and when he creates a surrender flag, the others take it the wrong way and believe he’s surrendering for them. They beat him unconscious and leave him on the floor. Soon the artillery begins again and because he’s on the floor, he becomes the only survivor. He wanders around looking for the camp his group was in. He becomes sick looking at all the corpses on the ground and decides to help bury them and pray for them by stealing a monks robe.
Meanwhile, Captain Inouye and his men are wondering what happened, and cling to a belief that he is still out there. Eventually they buy a parrot (saying ‘Mizushima lets go back to japan together’ over and over again) and tell a villager to bring it to a monk they suspect Mizushima is hiding as. But they get a reply that he won’t come back to Japan with them, because he must continue burying the dead.

Yes I can see dead people (Hong Kong) 2008

Yes I can see dead people (Chinese) 2008

Sun Boy’z member Steven Cheung sheds his bandmates to take on a starring role in Yes, I Can See Dead People, a teen horror film about that age-old movie problem: seeing ghosts. As the title might suggest, Yes, I See Dead People has moments of comedy to lighten its otherwise creepy premise, but it still features tense atmosphere and plenty of shock scares that should have teenagers cowering in delighted fear. Though the concept of “seeing ghosts” has long been overused, Yes, I See Dead People manages to separate itself from similar genre entries, managing a fine balance between creepy horror and knowing comedy. Steven Cheung departs from his usual sidekick roles to play the hero, and is joined by Kris Gu (The Eye 10), screen veteran Lau Kong, and fellow EEG singer Mandy Chiang.
Steven Cheung is Nam, a slacker who has the power to see dead people – and he seems to be pretty okay with it. From departed friends to ghostly children, the undead populate the corridors of Nam’s housing estate, and he’s used to their presence, disturbing though it should be. Things change when his brother Tung (Kris Gu) begins acting distant and wetting himself, and Nam thinks that there may be more going on than just his brother’s lack of self control. Estate security guard Fok (Lau Kong) clues Nam in: there are dangerous ghosts too, and one of them is starting to mount his own terror campaign by possessing Nam’s neighbors and family. Fok also teaches Nam that those who possess ghost-seeing powers must bear the responsibility to use them properly. But can Nam learn the tricks of the ghost-busting trade before the evil spirits take his brother or the stewardess (Kathy Yuen) that he has the hots for?
