Set during World War II, the inhuman side of combat is again emphasized in this film that deals with navy officers and their decisions concerning the "great fleet" that they must manage. In order to put the human drama of separation and death in full relief, that drama is played against scenes of nature (ocean waves, cherry blossoms, falling snow) that convey a sense of impermanence and ephemeral tranquility.
