Kobayashi wants his audience to feel the soul crushing persistence of evil that war represents and no one who does make it through all three parts of “The Human Condition” can remain untouched. Each part has its own title (“No Greater Love” — Part I; “Road to Eternity” — Part II; and “A Soldier’s Prayer” — Part III) ) and the first and last parts even have their own intermissions. http://www.offoffoff.com/film/2008/the_human_condition.php
