This film is an important piece of cinema. We have seen the potential of such an epic, but the director lacked the budget. Luckily he put his faith in the actors and cast. It is a very powerful film with a very compelling plot, that will be remembered. Director Paul Haggis did a marvelous job, and you can't go wrong with his team.

I have read a few reviews and read all the press about the historical accuracy of the film, but this film made me cry. The military men were always portrayed as being in uniform, but never a soldier. The veterans made the film with their emotions and emotions, and that is what I loved the most about this film. It's about the anguish that comes from war. As the narrator says in the film, "A war is hell." That was the hardest thing to watch for me. I had the same anguish watching all the scenes of the fighting in Bosnia. I never wanted that war to end. I was at war all the time, but I never felt as terrible as watching these scenes from Bosnia. This film shows the human cost of war. I am glad to have seen it and it will stay with me. I also want to thank the actors for putting their hearts and souls into this film. Thank you so much.

This film is excellent. It tells the story of a family in the early 1950's as they are forced to make hard decisions on how to take care of their dying father and the other members of their family. The film also explores the effect of war on family members, as it affects the mother and father in particular. The story is very moving and moving is very rare. It's quite a good and rewarding film to watch. It's very well-acted and some of the performances are amazing. However, I will say that I do not recommend this film to children as it is very graphic and very scary. This film is based on a true story and should not be watched by children under the age of 12 or anyone with a weak stomach. However, I still think this is a very good film. It's a good story, well-acted, and I think that it's a good film for everyone to watch. It is definitely a very good film. I think that it is good and worth watching and I would recommend it to anyone. It's a good film and I hope that the film is able to win the Oscar.

I was going to make a comment about this movie, but I am too afraid of spoiling the movie for those that don't know what I am talking about. This is the best film I have seen in a long time. Even the acting in this movie was good, especially by Hilary Swank. Hilary Swank is amazing. The plot is absolutely great and it just kept me on the edge of my seat. You know, like in Saving Private Ryan. I don't want to give away too much because it would ruin the movie, but it was a great way to start off a new year. I can't wait for the next movie to come out and hope they do a movie about WW2. It would be amazing. Even though I have never read the book I know that it is going to be amazing. I have read some reviews that said the movie was confusing or slow. I would say that the movie is good for a first time viewer because you will just feel a little lost, but when you go back to it you will still like it. But it is not a one time watch. So if you haven't seen it, don't wait too long and see it.

To be honest, I didn't think that it would be as good as it was, but then I saw the trailer for this film. So, I bought it and I was amazed that I didn't know about it or any of the cast. For me, it's the best film I've ever seen. It's a film that's both emotional and it's interesting. There's a lot of philosophy and a lot of emotions. It's definitely one of the best films I've seen in a while, and I was surprised at how good it was. I would recommend this film to anyone, but especially to people who are not into war movies. To be honest, I think that the title of the film is misleading and that it doesn't have that much to do with the movie. Overall, this is a great film and I highly recommend it.

This movie is simply a masterpiece! The cinematography is beautiful, and the performances are extraordinary. The movie does not end on a bad note and although I found myself bored a few times in my first viewing I found myself watching the movie over and over again. I think that for the most part people have this misconception of the movie, when in reality it is actually the best movie ever made. I can't get enough of it! If you have not seen this movie yet it is well worth the time. I think this movie has been under-rated and this movie is the best movie ever made!

The movie was shot in my hometown of La Crosse, WI, during the summer of 2005. It is the story of two Americans in WWI. The movie was based on the true story of an American woman named Anne Frank, the only known survivor of the Nazi's occupation of her home in Amsterdam. Her mother's diary details her attempts to hide from the Nazis. She is very shy, but also very intelligent, and was a great listener. This movie really brings out that aspect of her character, which is also why the film was so effective. The movie has a great pace and the characters are very interesting. The movie really shows that life wasn't always easy, and that it was really important to find some sense of happiness and peace in your life. The movie also shows how that can be a very difficult task. It is a movie that really shows the importance of having a sense of self and the importance of finding peace in your life, even in the darkest time. The movie is also a drama, and the characters will make you think a lot about war and war crimes. This movie is an important one, because it shows the value of the human life and that it is worth fighting for.

I am a veteran and WWII Veteran. This is the best film I have seen in years. It was realistic and gave me a new perspective on the events of the war and the people that were affected by the war. This film helped me to understand and appreciate the war a little better. This movie is a must see and for the veterans that are here in the U.S. I know that war is going to be around for a long time and I will need to be prepared for it. The war will be over and I will be ready for it.

I have to say that I didn't expect much from this film. I had heard mixed reviews of it and I thought I would watch it because the trailer was the most promising thing I had seen in awhile. What I got was something that I have never seen before. The story of these people and the way they were treated by the Nazis was very powerful. For a while there it was like I was watching another film, but once the war was over I had to re-watch it. This is the film that convinced me to re-watch films I had previously missed. I think the director, Lars von Trier, did an amazing job making this film for what it is. It was very painful to watch these people suffer. I didn't want the film to end but it did. There was no happy ending. The film was very well made. The director made me feel like I was there with these people during the holocaust. I think von Trier was absolutely brilliant at making this film and it was one of the best films I have ever seen.

Saw this on the first night it was playing in NYC. I have to say that I wasn't familiar with the book, but that was not much of a problem. I just expected it to be a good movie. The book is a classic and while the acting is not so great, the story is great. The ending was a bit awkward, but it is understandable. I loved it!

I love this movie. It has so many beautiful characters, amazing acting, and a perfect soundtrack. My husband and I saw this movie over the weekend, and we both agreed that this is a great movie. The movie begins with a pilot named Conner (played by Hugh Jackman), who is taken from his home in South Africa to a prison in the United States. He was a World War Two pilot, and spent his time as a pilot. The United States government had tried to assassinate Conner, and used him as a test subject. However, he escaped, and found a letter from a family in South Africa that was kidnapped by a group of American guerrillas. Conner and the guerrillas kidnap the family, and bring them to a farm in South Africa. Conner's bond with the family is a great part of the movie. A few hours later, Conner is back in the United States, and has to deal with the emotional trauma of having lost his family. A young girl named Janie (played by Samantha Morton) helps Conner through his emotional crisis. The movie was very touching. The acting was great, and the music was just perfect. The only thing I didn't like about the movie was the fact that there was a large part of the movie set in South Africa, but some of the footage was filmed in the United States. However, it doesn't really matter. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes WWII movies. The movie was excellent, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I saw this movie on IMAX, and it is a truly amazing piece of art. It is amazing to see how someone can make a movie that touches your heart. I only hope that someday Hollywood will take notice and put more movies in IMAX for the American people to experience. I recommend this movie to everyone, regardless of what nation they are from, and if you want to watch a great movie that will move you, then this is the one to watch.

An impulsive, passionate, passion-driven love story between two unlikely romantics, a pregnant girl, and a young boy, and a war hero, who are forced to leave their childhood homes in the middle of nowhere to fight a war. The young girl, Jane, is eager to get away from the war but has been left behind by her parents. When her father has to leave to fight the war, Jane decides to go along with her father and nurse him back to health in her native Pennsylvania. After witnessing the brutal killing of an innocent child, the war veteran, Delmar (Johnny Depp), discovers Jane and the boy in the woods, and kidnaps them. The young boy, Ben, lives with his mother, Lydia, who is forced to make a difficult choice: he must leave the war and risk his life as a fighter, or he must stay behind with his mother and risk the lives of the others. This remarkable story is directed with skill and sensitivity by Joe Wright. It is a story of love, bravery, love, sacrifice, courage and adventure, and the war that is raging throughout the world. There are some great scenes in this film, such as the battle of Rota between the Prussians and the Dutch, the battle of Lepanto, the landing of the Union Army on Santa Maria, and the desperate battle of Chateauguay between the French and the Indians. This is a terrific war story, that includes a great cast. Johnny Depp is excellent as Delmar, who's character is very brave and violent. He's an excellent character and adds real life to the movie. My favorite character is the young boy, Ben, who is extremely loyal to his father, and shows signs of what it means to be a soldier. The young boy has a perfect portrayal of a young boy. The story also includes a great war song, which plays when Delmar asks for the boy's life. This is a great war movie and one of the best war movies ever made.

I must admit that I was only able to fully appreciate the impact of "Lost Horizon" when I had just rewatched "Die Hard 2". This is not to say that the two films are very different in their approach to action - I agree that "Lost Horizon" is superior and the events that take place in "Die Hard 2" are not too clear, but the latter film is a great mix of action and drama - whereas "Bitter Harvest" is a wonderful adventure - its setting is beautiful, the music and the camera-work are wonderful and the story is very well written and acted. And for once, the director and the actors really play their parts as they should and I thought that the actors did a good job as well. The only thing that I would say that I would've liked to have seen was a bit more time with the German language. The story is really good and I enjoyed it immensely. I think that this film is a definite must see and I really hope that it will get the wider release it deserves. I do not recommend it for people who want to be entertained - I'm sure they will enjoy the story and I really think that the story will make it more worthwhile for anyone who is interested in World War 2. The film is well directed, the script is wonderful, the music is wonderful and the story is great. I really recommend it to anyone who is interested in World War 2 and the events that take place in it - it is a great film. Highly Recommended.

After watching a very bad film, I was somewhat scared that I would fall asleep during this one. And I didn't. I didn't even fall asleep during the first half. And it was the most peaceful time in the movie. As a matter of fact, I was actually leaning forward in my chair and "thinking" about the movie, not thinking about whether I should be watching it or not. But I managed to fall asleep within a few minutes. It was like a dream. I don't understand why I did not fall asleep during the first half of this movie, but I'm sure I would have fallen asleep during the last half. I was so deeply in love with this movie that I was unable to make a rational explanation for this phenomenon. I felt like I had watched a different movie. For instance, it seemed like a film where we see the action from the perspectives of two people. Or one man and the others in the village. But somehow I think the two men are the two sides of the same coin. The action and the emotions are very similar to what happened in the real life of two people. It made me think that both men had the same fate. And it made me think that death is not a bad thing. I've never seen such a brave and free movie. And I think it is a very important movie in the history of cinema. The most important thing about this movie is that it shows you that every human being is good or bad. In my opinion, the main purpose of life is to be happy, not to be afraid. And every human being must try to see this world as beautiful. This movie shows how beautiful human being can be. I've never seen such a good movie before. I think it's the best movie ever made. I've seen it so many times that it's not an exaggeration for me. It's the only movie that I can watch over and over again. I love it so much that I will watch it when I'm dying and when I'm dying. This movie is not an exaggeration for me. It's the only movie that I will watch over and over again. It's so incredible, I'll never watch it again. I'll never watch it again. And that is why I can say I'm in love with this movie. It's so amazing. It's not a normal movie, it's not a movie for average people, it's a movie that could be liked by the most men of all ages.

I had never seen the play before but have read the book several times. I felt that the movie captured the essence of the play. Great job!

I have just seen the movie and I must say that I enjoyed it very much. This is an accurate portrayal of the battles of the Great War. You will find this in a decent movie theater near you. The battle scenes are authentic and beautiful. You will be able to feel the pain of those who fought and were killed. You will also be able to understand what the soldiers felt and how they were affected by the war. You will also learn that they were all human beings that were fighting to survive and if we are to survive the next battle, we will have to learn to be like them. You will find an ending that will not disappoint you. In a war that was very bitter and one that the majority of people did not like, this movie is very well made and makes you feel that it is the right thing to do. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes historical war movies. If you do not like historical war movies, do not see this movie, but if you do like historical war movies, I suggest you see this movie. I rate it 9 out of 10.

The film's great. I was able to feel that it was happening to me. I could feel the beauty and the darkness that it portrays and can't get enough of it. The acting is wonderful. Not only are the actors excellent, but the film itself is great. The cinematography is beautiful. The scenes are very expressive and feel so real that you feel like you are right there in the midst of the carnage. There is no way that the movie could have been as good as it is. There are a few scenes that make you feel like it is happening to you, but that is about the extent of it. The film is very, very sad and you will feel like you are in the midst of the situation. A few scenes that made me feel like I was there. It is really, really emotional. It is quite possibly one of the best films of the year. I give it a 10/10. It is one of my favorite films of all time. It is beautifully shot and has an incredible score that is brilliant. This is one of those films that you can see over and over again and it will never get old. One of the best films of the year. 10/10

In spite of the considerable detractors of the film, I find it's a deeply humane and excellent film. To me, it's a movie that should be seen by everyone. No doubt, it has been criticized by the German Communists because it's anti-Nazi. I found the depiction of how the Nazis regarded the Jewish race to be quite accurate and well done. I also found the depiction of the Nazis to be accurate and the love between these two men to be quite interesting. I give the movie a perfect 10.

I remember seeing the trailer for this movie at the cinema, and it being a pretty good one for a movie not too long after seeing the Japanese original of the same name, where the whole story is about a group of young people who all meet and end up being changed from how they were before. This one seems to have a pretty good plot, because you can see the changes from what happened before, and how it would've turned out. The acting is excellent, the soundtrack is good, and the direction is even better, and very creative, and interesting. I didn't really see the whole point of this movie, but this movie has a lot of things to do with what happened in Japan after the second world war, so it does have something to do with it. It's pretty good. Not bad at all.

I'll admit I'm a man who thinks there is a right and wrong answer to life, and that maybe this movie isn't that much like the book (because it's based on a novel), but I would have loved to have watched this movie with the book as a back-up. The movie was incredibly moving, and I never felt it was overlong. It actually did a really good job of capturing the atmosphere and mood of the book. There were some things that I felt were left out of the book. There were a few things that I thought were right in the movie, and some things that I thought were just messed up. The book was a little different in the way that the book was written. But this is probably because it was a fictional book. It doesn't really need to be written like a storybook. The movie, as I said before, was so much better than the book, that it took me by surprise. I would love to see a sequel to this. I hope they make it. If the book was released before, I wouldn't even have had a clue what the movie was about, but with the movie, I would have been right on the spot with the book. I'm not going to say that there weren't any problems, because there were a few, but I really do think that the movie was a good movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who reads the book.

This is a very beautifully made film. The best way I can describe it is as a documentary about the localities of this war and it makes you feel like you are actually living in the area. It tells a story of people that no one else knows about. It tells you what war is like for all involved. I think the best part of the film is the interviews with the men, the women, the children, the grandparents, the teachers. It gives you a really nice overview of the lives of people affected by the war. The performance of the cast is amazing. It has the feel of being a documentary film. All the actors are strong, so are the parents. It really shows the situation that the children are faced with. It gives you a really good feel for what it's like to be a child in war-torn regions. I really enjoyed the way that the director keeps you in the middle of the film. I thought the story of the family and the children was very touching. It's a really touching film. I recommend it to anyone who likes war films. 10/10

First of all I would like to point out that this movie is not the easiest to watch, it is a slow moving film. The start is very slow, but the movie really starts to pick up. The acting is good, especially the two main actors. The movie is about the Civil War, which is basically about the Confederacy and the Union. The movie gives you a very good idea of what happened, but it is not really clear which side was the one that started the war. In the beginning of the movie you do not really know which side was right or wrong. The first thing I wanted to do when I started watching the movie was to get the basic information about the war. I did not have to do this for the movie, the movie was very clear. The only thing that I did not like about the movie was the acting. The acting is very good, but the main characters seemed a little childish. Overall, this is a very good movie and is well worth watching.

Went to see this film with my wife on Saturday, it was excellent. The cast was very good. I was impressed by Ed Harris, he is in some of my favourite films, and he was good in this one too. The plot was very interesting. The storyline seemed to move at a very fast pace. I found myself very emotionally involved in the storyline, and that makes for a good movie. I am a very big fan of The Last King of Scotland, and this movie reminded me of The Last King of Scotland in many ways. Overall, I thought it was a very good film. It is not for the weak of heart. I would say go see it if you like good movies. As always, I recommend that you see this film before seeing Pirates of the Caribbean.
