Forget the trendy Euro-violence of Irreversible and Baise-Moi, Man Behind the Sun is a truly horrifying docu-drama.

Set in a Japanese terror camp in the end of World War II, the film exposes Japanese atrocities carried out against the Chinese under the rule of General Shiro Ishi, including terrible 'scientific experiments' to develop deadly bacterial plagues.
