Ninomiya Kazunari as Saigo

http://www.thehotbutton.com/today/hot.button/index.html

At the center of Letters From Iwo Jima are two characters, drawn in classic Hollywood fashion. One is General Tadamichi Kuribayashi, played by Ken Watanabe, who fights his own high-ranking subordinates to build the tunnels on the island in a bid to extend the fight longer than reasonably likely if fought in the conventional way. The other is Saigo, played by Kazunari Ninomiya, a baker-turned-soldier who is touched by and then inspired by Kuribayashi, but never loses the simple humanity at his core. Both men deserve all the awards they can handle.


believe me, his opinion matters
