In the second part of this essay, I will be reflecting on a recent film and how it was inspired by postwar Japanese cinema. The military took charge of the government and in turn dictated the local film policy by producing propogandic films. The Motion Picture Law was formed and when foreign films entered Japan, they suffered badly by going through a lot of cuts. The law also put a curb on these foreign films if they are found to be democratic and of different ideology.

Ho was and is still a widely known figure, as he founded the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and led Vietminh in their fight against the Japanese until 1945, and the French, in the battle at Dien Bien Phu in 1954 . Therefore, due to Ho’s popularity domestically and internationally, this speech was not only for the people of Vietnam, but also for international figures, intended to convince them that Vietnam’s independence

In the film, The Last Samurai, starring Tom Cruise, viewers are taken on a journey of the modernization of Japan. They see the change the country went through to get to what they are today through the eyes of the samurai.
