Wide shot of veterans saluting 17. SOUNDBITE (English) Commander Tom Schneider, US Air Force, United Nations Rear Command in Japan "There are many thousands of missing soldiers from the Korean war which means that there are many thousands of families that have their relatives - that they don't know where they were. So this ceremony honours the commitment that these soldiers gave to their country and for freedom and for the freedom of South Korea. And it also gives a little bit of closure to those families." 18. Wide shot of caskets 19. Close up of veterans wreath STORYLINE: Remains recently unearthed in North Korea and believed to those of seven American soldiers missing in action from the Korea War were repatriated on Tuesday to the moan of bagpipes and the crack of a 21-gun salute. A bugler blew taps as the caskets, draped in powder blue United Nations flags, were carried by full-dress military honour guards under a full moon and into a hangar at Yokota Air Base on the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan. A US Air Force cargo plane had picked up the remains in Pyongyang earlier in the day. The remains were flown to Yokota Air Base because it was a staging point for the UN forces that backed South Korea during the 1950-53 Korean War. Flags of the nations that sent troops, including Turkey, Thailand and Great Britain, flanked the caskets at Tuesday's hangar ceremony. On Wednesday, the remains are scheduled to be flown to the US Army's Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii for forensic examination. The remains were recoveries during the first of three searches scheduled this year in North Korea by US teams with help from the North Korean army. The second search is scheduled to start August 24 and end one month later. The final search will be in October. Six of the seven remains were recovered near the Chosin Reservoir. The area was the scene of fierce battles in November and December 1950, when the First Marine Division was overwhelmed by a surprise Chinese army assault and was forced to withdraw under fire. Elements of the Army's Seventh Infantry Division also fought there. The seventh set of remains was recovered along the Chongchon River near the junction of Unsan and Kujang counties, about 60 miles (100 kilometres) north of Pyongyang. The area was the site of battles between the US Army's First Cavalry and 25th Infantry Division and Chinese forces in November 1950. More than 81-hundred US troops remain unaccounted for from the 1950-53 Korean War. Since 1996, searches by US teams have recovered 159 sets of remains, of which 13 have been identified positively. Pentagon officials have estimated that the Chosin area eventually could yield about the remains of about one-thousand American servicemen.

Film trailer 'An American Rhapsody' (Courtesy of Paramount Classics) 2. SOT Nastassja Kinski - "I knew a lot about the political situation, I knew what has happened to people in general, similar things. To actually talk to the person that was that person, that child who it happened to, it was wonderful to be able to do that." 3. Film clip 'An American Rhapsody' 4. SOT Nastassja Kinski - "When she left it's like you don't really know if it was going to work out, if she is ever going to see her child again so that was absolutely... I think you get to have strengths when you have to because they probably would have been killed or put in jail or seperated from their children." 5. Film clip 'An American Rhapsody' 6. SOT Scarlett Johansson - "It was easy for us to fall in to the mother daughter relationship. I think the hardest thing for us was to act like we despised each other because we really got along so well. It would be like we were cuddling and then it would be action and then it would be arraugh!!." 7. Film clip 'An American Rhapsody' 8. SOT Nastassja Kinski - "I{f anyone asked me I would say no absolutely not but yet if it's the survival of your whole family, maybe, if that was the plan and it was solid as it could be, we all have to survive." 9. Film clip 'An American Rhapsody' NASTASSJA KINSKI BREATHES LIFE INTO COLD WAR Nastassja Kinski's new movie, An American Rhapsody has had its fair share of publicity in the run up to its North American release today (August 10th). It opened the prestigious Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic - its world premiere - and then had a high profile North American premiere for it's US release. Nastassja Kinski attended both events. The movie tells the true-life story of filmmaker, Eva Gardos, who directed the film. It relates her early childhood separation from her parents. Her family was forced to flee Hungary during the Cold War, and left the young Eva (played by 6-year-old Hungarian Kelly Endresz-Banlaki) behind for the first six years of her life. Eva grows up on a farm in Hungary with a couple she thinks are her parents until a red cross worker whisks her off to Los Angeles where she is confronted with the full force of American 1950s consumerism. Years later the teenage Eva (Scarlett Johansson) is a troubled woman. In the conformity of 1950s America her parents have insisted they deny their past and while Eva looks and acts like any other all American teenager, a part of her still yearns for the Hungarian farm where she spent her formative years. When she attempts to go back, things come to a head with her mother. Gardos, an experienced film editor, made her directing debut with "An American Rhapsody" which has won critical praise for its screenplay. Award winning actress Nastassja Kinski ("Paris, Texas," The Claim, Tess, Cat People) portrays the mother tortured by the separation from her daughter. Kinski, who is also a mother, says she identified closely with the role, and the plight of many whose families were displaced and sometimes never reunited. Scarlett Johansson ( The Horse Whisperer, Home Alone 3) enjoyed the experience of working with Nastassja Kinski. For actor Tony Goldwyn (Bounce, The Sixth Day, Kiss The Girls), who plays Eva's father, "An American Rhapsody" represented a unique challenge: The film required him to learn and deliver a portion of his lines in Hungarian, an experience he described as "a trip." Reviews so far have been mixed, ranging from "An absorbing and heartfelt memoir of immigrant life" to accusing Gardos of turning "a poignant tale of displacement into melodrama." An American Rhapsody goes on limited release in the USA from 10th August. FILM CLIP DETAILS American Rhapsody Paramount Pictures 1 213 956 5000
