Železničar - The Railway Man

Slovenski opis filma:

Zgodba govori o nekdanjem britanskem vojaku Ericu Lomaxu, ki so ga med drugo svetovno vojno zajeli Japonci ter ga poslali na prisilno delo v taborišče, kjer so gradili železnico. Ko Japonci naposled odkrijejo radio, ki si ga je sestavil sam, ga obtožijo vohunstva ter ga kruto mučijo. Mnogo let pozneje Eric še vedno trpi zaradi psiholoških travm, ki jih je povzročila vojna. Zaradi prigovarjanja dolgoletnega prijatelja Finleya in žene Patti se odloči soočiti z enim od svojih mučiteljev, ki se je izognil sojenju zaradi vojnih zločinov.

Originalni opis filma:

Eric Lomax was one of thousands of Allied prisoners of war forced to work on the construction of the Thai/Burma railway during WW2. His experiences, after the secret radio he built to bring news and hope to his colleagues was discovered, left him traumatised and shut off from the world. Years later, he met Patti, a beautiful woman, on a train and fell in love. Patti was determined to rid Eric of his demons. Discovering that the young Japanese officer who haunted her husband was still alive, she faced a terrible decision. Should Eric be given a chance to confront his tormentor? Would she stand by him, whatever he did?
