Jamie "Jim" Graham, figlio di inglesi benestanti trapiantati a Shangai, vive in una casa lussuosa alla periferia della città con la sua famiglia. È un grande appassionato del gioco del bridge, canta nel coro della chiesa e ha una grandissima passione per gli aeroplani.Nel 1941 l'esercito giapponese invade la Cina. La città viene occupata e Jamie e la sua famiglia sono costretti a lasciare la loro casa. Durante uno sfollamento, nel tentativo di recuperare un modellino di aereo cadutogli per terra, Jamie lascia la mano della madre e si perde tra la folla. Tornato a casa, attenderà invano il ritorno dei suoi genitori. Quando il cibo in casa finisce decide di addentrarsi in città, dove si imbatte in Basie, ladruncolo americano cinico e poco affidabile. Jamie decide di affidarsi a lui e Basie si approfitta dell'ingenuità del ragazzo. In un primo momento cerca di venderlo, ma non ci riesce. Jamie capisce che sta per essere abbandonato per la sua inutilità e per evitare di restare nuovamente da solo, spiega a Basie che nel quartiere dove viveva prima è possibile trovare oggetti e denaro all'interno delle case abbandonate, compresa la sua. Si dirigono così nella sua vecchia villa, dove vengono accolti da alcuni giapponesi che si sono insediati nell'edificio. Gli uomini picchiano Basie davanti al bambino terrorizzato e, successivamente, li internano in un campo di concentramento dove sono stipati altri cittadini inglesi ed americani. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Blu-ray.

When I heard the beautiful John Williams' score play on my TV and a boy watching a lone fighter plane soar across the runway, I was immediately captivated and sat in awe as this boy cheered on the fighter plane. I immediately rewound the tape and read the title of this clip: Empire of the Sun.
I quickly ran to my local Blockbuster and rented the movie not even knowing what the film was about and was witnessed to the most amazing film I had ever seen!
The performances were top notch and the performance from the young Christian Bale, who plays the young boy, Jim, forced in a Japanese Intern Camp, is the greatest performance by a child I have ever seen, exceeding that of such names as Henry Thomas (E.T.) and young oscar nominee Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense).
The movie itself is a visual masterpiece with never a dull moment. This movie contains some of the most memorable and beuatiful scenes I have ever seen anywhere. The story itself is full of drama, action, and suspence that captures your heart and never lets go even after the end credits are rolling!
As usual, John Williams delivers with one of his greatest scores ever. The visual effects are astounding and perfectly executed to enhance the storytelling of the movie.
I disagree with some of the negative reviews that plague this underrated epic. Many people before its release expected it to be this huge blockbuster stemming off as an adaptation of a book by the same name. How can anyone expect a movie about a boy torn from his parents and forced to live in a Japanese Prison Camp, get cursed and beaten at and forced to eat bugs and potatoes for years to be a huge blockbuster. Many people attacked it for its lack of commercial success.
While this may not be the most historically accurate film in the case of how horrific the conditions of the prison camps really were, this would only destract the audiance from what the film should be and is, a film that begins tragically but ends up being a coming of age heartwarming epic drama about a boy forced to live and grow up fast under the harshest of conditions and yet triumphs against all obstacles.
First, Spielberg has a top-notch script from Tom Stoppard (who is surprisingly restrained with the dialogue). The cinematography by Allen Daviau is exquisite (and the transfer to DVD looks outstanding on my widescreen HDTV). The acting -- especially Christian Bale as the main character, Jim -- is great as well. I get tears in my eyes if I just hear one of the EMPIRE OF THE SUN themes from John Williams' score.
THE COLOR PURPLE and EMPIRE OF THE SUN were Spielberg's "stretch" films where he attempted to do more adult work. EMPIRE OF THE SUN is deeply moving. On the surface, its story concerns young Jim and how is separated from his parents and survives a war camp in pre-World War II China. Thematically, Spielberg tells us the story of growing up, losing one's innocence, and learning that people will do anything for a Hershey bar. When Jim throws his suitcase containing all of his boyhood possessions into the river, he makes an important choice in life. And yet Spielberg, who is a sentimentalist, reminds us that after surviving life's hardships we all still need a hug from our mothers.
EMPIRE OF THE SUN is one of Spielberg's best -- if not THE best film he's made. I think it's been overlooked. Please try to see it.
As you probably know, "Empire Of The Sun" is about a young British boy who becomes separated from his parents during WWII and ends up in an internment camp. Being a Spielberg film, the direction and cinematography are, of course, stunning. Great effort was put into making this film appear realistic and it works wonderfully. In fact, this was the first major American film shot in China.
Another strong point of this movie is that it is shown through the eyes of a child. Often, war movies are all too harsh, violent and depressing. "Empire Of The Sun" successfully shows us glimpses of the brutalness of war but it also allows us to keep a constant feeling of hope and determination. That is in no small part due to the talent of Bale. He makes the viewer feel what he feels. There is an amazing amount of passion in his performance.
It's a shame that this is one of Spielberg's least respected efforts. I put off seeing "Empire Of The Sun" for a long time because of the tepid reviews it received. Instead of mediocrity, however, I found a movie filled with inspiration. Please do yourself a favor and see it as well!
Empire of the Sun gets lost sometimes in the film snob's library; it's an epic war film, but it's also a Spielberg film, which stereotypes this masterpiece as standard Hollywood-fare. Spielberg fans want it to be faster, war fans are made uncomfortable by the deep characterization of the child protagonist. Much like Blade Runner, the audience misconceives what the movie is really about, and many film-goers absolutely refuse to empathize with a bleeding-heart child character. My only supposition is that people are too guarded about their emotions to risk feeling the sorrow and pain that these characters go through; any notion that this film is over-acted, under-acted, or lacks in character development is simply false.
Sure, the film tugs on the heart strings. But it's about a young boy destroyed by war -- it should. When it was released in 1987, audiences weren't interested in war. They were interested in light comedies, explosions, and the greed of Wall Street. No wonder this film wasn't nominated for best picture and Fatal Attraction was. If this movie were released today, it would win Best Picture in a heartbeat.
