Very interesting, entertaining and educational
3 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This movie is quite a surprise. It tells a story I had no idea existed. It seems quite amazing it is a true story. It is as dramatic as a fictional story written to be dramatic. I missed the beginning of the movie but based on the description of the DVD I will buy a copy when I get the chance.
