    One of the most famous films in the history of cinema, whose myth has come to obscure its real value. It is not a film at all despicable, despite the fact that its overvaluation has generated an understandable adverse reaction. Based on the novel by Pierre Boulle, it proposes a dissection of the British military spirit through a situation where stubbornness will be taken to its ultimate consequences. Its impeccable invoice does not prevent all its implications from being perfectly reflected.
