Winner of seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, The Bridge on the River Kwai is an epic World War II film.

The film is about British war prisoners during World War II who are sent to construct a passageway to correspond with the Burma-Siam railway. Immediately they think of overthrowing the project, but Colonel Nicholson convinces them to construct the passageway as a representation of British integrity, disposition and character during a conflicting time. 

In the beginning of the film the prisoners commend Nicholson’s strength for tolerating hardshps instead of forgetting his values. It is true that he is a man of respect, but presumptuous at the same time. It is later revealed that Nicholson is a deceitful man, obsessed with the idea of constructing the passageway as a testament to himself. It is not for the valor of what they have gone through as he had mentioned to the other prisoners. His persistence on building the passageway starts to grow into a perceptive participation with his adversaries. Little does he know that the Allies have been ordered to destroy the passageway.
