About this item

A gripping tale of love and honor forged between fierce enemies of war, "Emperor" unfolds the story, inspired by true events, of the bold and secret moves that won the peace in the shadows of post-war Japan. Matthew Fox joins Academy Award(R) winner Tommy Lee Jones and newcomer Eriko Hatsune to bring to life the American occupation of Japan in the perilous and unpredictable days just after Emperor Hirohito's World War II surrender. As General Douglas MacArthur (Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture - General Bonner Fellers (Fox), to covertly investigate the looming question hanging over the country: should the Japanese Emperor, worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved? Caught between the high-wire political intrigue of his urgent mission and his own impassioned search for the mysterious school teacher (Hatsune) who first drew him to Japan, Fellers can be certain only that the tricky subterfuge about to play out will forever change the history of two nations and his heart.

Audio Commentary with Director Peter Webber and Producer Yoko Narahashi, Behind-the-Scenes Photo Gallery, Deleted Scenes, Theatrical Trailer.

Subtitles: English (Closed Captioned) and Spanish.

This is a wonderful movie and I enjoyed it. The history value is good if you like a history movie. Tommy Lee Jones is excellent as McArthur. Well worth watching this movie.

This is a very enlightening film based on the story of a real officer during the occupation of Japan after World War II ended. General Douglas MacArthur faces a touchy situation dealing with whether or not to charge the Emperor Hirohito with war crimes, which was then a hanging offense. Surprisingly, with the help of one of his officer's investigation and his meeting with Hirohito (no one was supposed to talk with or even look at the deified emperor in those days) he comes to a decision which saves everyone further grief. Told from the viewpoint of the younger officer who investigates, a sympathetic picture of the Japanese people emerges. Great movie!
