Wholesome movie
28 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure to watch the movie with my family in a private cinema. While the acting is not the best, the movie does make up for it because it is a really good wholesome family movie.

The era that the movie was set in must have been very turbulent yet the movie avoided the blood, gore and hatred but instead show the courage of the human spirit and the goodness in man kind. The human spirit is a wonderful thing and the sacrifice made by individuals are usually swept under the carpet for the sake of sensationalism. This movie reminds us of the sacrifice made by the different characters like the Jewish boy who died in the bomb, the main actor for the girl and others. There were also many caring characters which are real in my world.

It will be good if families go out together to watch this movie so that apart from their bonding, they can stir up each other's spirit and be encouraged by values that is good.

Love it. Oliver
