May be the best film ever made
28 September 2002 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

There is no real plot to speak of. It is mostly just some of the horrors of war as seen through the eyes of children. However, the visuals, acting and direction draws you in and never lets you go until the end. The movie makes its characters so sympathetic, that you almost ignore the political propaganda and concentrate entirely on their plight. War never looked so good, or more horrific.

If you are turned off by under aged nudity and child abuse, you probably would want to avoid this movie, however, you would be missing the cinematic experience of this or any lifetime.
