Inspired by actual events, Anatahan explore the conflicting personalities of a dozen Japanese sailors stranded on a remote island in the Pacific during the waning days of World War II. For a time, they maintain their military discipline, but when they discover a young woman (Akemi Negishi) living on the island, the paradise island becomes a nest of jealousy, violence , and desire. Filmed in Japan on elaborately constructed sets, with non-English-speaking actors, Anatahan was deeply personal project for director Josef von Sternberg (The Blue Angel, Morocco, The Scarlet Empress), and provided a thoroughly unique capstone to his extraordinary career.
