powerful, heart wrenching look at the reality of the P.O.W. experience.
4 December 2000 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

This was such a great movie. By the end of the movie, I was in tears. I just felt so proud to be an American and so very proud of two of my brothers, who served two tours each in the Vietnam War. This movie was very emotional and I felt that it showed us that we should be very proud and respect all the men and women who served over there regardless of what our opinion of the war was. And I will always remember the scene with the woman who had been in a concentration camp for over two years and the P.O.W. telling her that she should be standing in his place and that he should be thanking her. This was a very emotional film, one that I will not forget anytime soon.
