Japanese officers attend the infamous Tokyo school for spies in this frightening and depressing docudrama. Those who do not pass the course are encouraged to fall on their swords and die. The premise that decent, patriotic officers are turned into immoral killing machines is hard to take. Soldiers are trained to kill, and this is just another class in carnage for which they willingly accept the risks of life and death.
