"Letters from Iwo Jima" won Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globes this past Monday night. The film has already won many accolades- and the Golden Globes win paves the way for an Oscar.
The film relates the battle of Iwo Jima during World War II from the viewpoint of the Japanese who fought it.
"Letters from Iwo Jima" is Clint Eastwood's companion film to his successful "Flags of Our Fathers" released earlier this year.
"Flags of Our Fathers" documents the same battle, but told through the viewpoint of the Americans. The bloody, costly battle produced the iconic image of the men raising the American flag at the end of the battle.
