Tenko


For all those that liked this movie...you should watch a show called Tenko. It was done in the early 80s and is a FAR better representation as to what the internment was actually like.

Tenko is an AMAZING series by the BBC! You can buy it on DVD or download it from a torrent site. Three seasons and a reunion episode.

You MUST watch Tenko...it is the original and it is phenomenal.

also...a lot of the characters in Paradise road are based on those in Tenko...and the beginning of the movie is the same as the first few episodes..

Thank you Stoney for posting this about "Tenko"
I had never heard of this series before and decided to look for it on the Internet. I found it on Youtube and watched it in one go (almost). It took me five days and very late nights as I found it so gripping.
But I have to say that I didn't find it as horrific as "Paradise Road".
I couldn't bring myself to watch PR again, so powerful it was in all it's horror.
"Tenko" is amazing and beautifully acted but, compared to "Paradise Road", I found it subdued.
