A wonderful documentary!!
6 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you want to understand the 1940's, your parents or grandparents and the times in which they grew up, then this is the documentary to watch. The entire 3 hours will make you smile, make you proud and bring tears to your eyes as you listen to the music that motivated a country, the personal stories of the people who were coming of age then and life before, during and after World War II. It is a terrific story and you'll find you can't tear your eyes away from the screen as the film makers have truly brought that era to life. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a penchant for that time in history or a fondness for movies made during those years.
