內容簡介
「不毛地帶」劇情敘述主角壹岐正,是個出身日本陸軍學校的高材生。30歲就進入日本侵華作戰的參謀總部,是個前景看好的年輕軍人。

二次大戰的亞洲區在美國投下原子彈後,日本不得不投降,這時候負責傳遞關東軍停戰令就是壹岐(關東軍駐地為當時的中國東北疆域)。面對著軍士激憤難當的投降情勢,壹岐決定留下善後,不先行返回國內。想不到卻被受降的蘇聯拘捕,企圖以軍人作證,在國際軍事法庭上指控天皇,讓其承擔開戰責任。

壹岐與其他忠誠日本將士不肯屈服,於是在寒冷的西伯利亞展開11年的拘留苦役。戰友或死或逃,能存活下來的僅有少數人。好不容易回到日本,只懂軍事的壹岐卻因害怕給家人再度帶來恐懼,堅持不肯再入日本防衛廳工作。
直到有間名為近畿商事的公司找上他,於是他決定徹底拋棄軍人身分,重新展開新的人生。無奈參謀要職帶來的軍隊人脈,仍使得壹岐被捲入日本國防軍備購買案的商業角逐。

這時候,面對著有心利用的社長,擔任防衛廳部長的昔日好友,以及東京商事虎視眈眈的競爭對手,壹岐再次被捲入政治與商場的黑幕....

這部片由唐澤壽明掛銜主演,參加的卡司還有小雪、柳葉敏郎、竹野內豐、岸部一德、天海祐希等出色的演員。遠赴西伯利亞拍攝勞改的生活,又重金重建50年前日、美街道建築,雖屬架空劇情,卻把政治派系、商業手段、媒體操作以及真實發生的歷史事件安排入戲。

情節雖然沉重,但是隨著劇情張力增加,越加緊湊、刺激。不論是前四集的國防軍購弊案,還是五、六集的第三次中東戰爭,階段性主題邏輯嚴密。權力廝殺與人心變換的深度,絕對不輸白色巨塔與華麗一族。

究竟壹岐還會被捲入何種殘酷的鬥爭?又需要他付出何種代價?作者山崎豐子的這部不毛地帶,絕對是值得推薦,好好品味的大作!
