Sea Without Exit trailer

It'd probably be beneficial to have subtitles on this trailer. That way I might at least have some inkling of what the story is about. As it is, it's more like See Without Understand. But I will say this: Stirring music and cinematography. As well as: Saturday, April 21st, 7:30pm, is when it'll be playing at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Be there or be a square meal for Godzilla! Domo arigato.

Here's the synopsis from the official NBFF site. Sounds Cool! :

With a screenplay written by Yoji Yamada, director and writer of epics such as "The Hidden Blade" and "The Twilight Samurai", and directed by the young and energetic Kyoshi Sasabe, who turned "Half a Confession" into a hit, "Sea Without Exit" brings two of the most recognized filmmakers in modern Japanese cinema to the silver screen with a brilliant film adaptation of a moving and compelling story.

Koji Namiki, a talented young pitcher who had won the National High School Baseball Championships enters university, and soon afterwards injures his elbow. He and his teammates work hard to get back on the field placing all his hopes on a new slow-ball, "the magic pitch." But the outbreak of WWII wipes out all baseball ambitions. Koji and his teammates join the military and in the navy undergo the severe training that will prepare them for death. Death awaits them in a "kaiten" (special attack submarine or "human torpedo"). Even the gloomy ocean depths, Koji never gives up his dream of the "magic pitch," or his will to survive.
