Missing in Action, Killed in Action or Prisonner of War
For the first time I'll comment another thing than a B movie. This one is a drama. Pretty well done. Of course, Mark Robson is more comfortable with action films. But this one is the first, as far as I know, which talks about soldiers's wives. Missing in Action, Killed in Action or Prisonner of War's wives. Women who expect the unexpected. Women who try to survive. Women who try to help themselves, share their pain, their hope. That reminds me a film shot in 2002 or 2003, starring Mel Gibson : WE WERE SOLDIERS. In this movie, the women's lives were also evoked, even if the film focused also on warfare, in Nam.
In LIMBO, we see these women prey to guilt, doubt, especially when some men are snooping around, trying to date with them. These women who suffer of loneliness. Women who don't know if their missing husbands are dead or not.
A sensitive movie. Very interesting one. But I guess that there were some other films about that subject.
