About 38 minutes in, in the scene where Katherine Cross is clearing the plates off the table to examine the baby, you can see the boom mic in the top left hand corner. In the same scene where the nun is talking to Brian, you can also see the boom mic at the top of the shot. See more »
This movie is perhaps the most touching movie that I have ever seen. The first time I saw it was while serving in the military. Everyone was literally glued to the TV as they watched. I don't think there was a dry eye in the barracks at the end (but nobody would admit it!)
The power of the movie came from several strong plots that ran simultaneously... It was a love story, a war story, a story of suffering and a story of triumph. You can see, and feel the change as a loner, who cared only for himself, learns to care about, and love others... even to the point of risking his life for the orphans and nuns that he once viewed as irritants. I strongly recommend this movie.
