delicate
13 November 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

subject. delicate way to say a painful story. and precise art of details. women in Japanese camp. Warld War II. South - East Asia. and levels of survive in difficult conditions. it is a book adaptation. a testimony. but, in fact, it can be more. a delicate manner to present a page of history. a precise exercise about fundamental values. and impressive portrait of woman, far of definition or stereotypes. so, it is not perfect. but it is remarkable. for extraordinary acting, for taste of blood, tears and dust, for small miracles, for fight against evil aspects, for the art to not transform all in Manichean picture. I do not know it is a good movie. this fact is not real important. but the images of sufferance and each act of courage and hope presented in this film is touching and good occasion to refection.
