THE HOUSE IS BURNING was definitely one of the best surprises this year at the Cannes Filmfestival. (Wim Wenders is one of the executive Producers - Peter Bogdanovich was also at the screening!!!) the structure of the film revolves around a group of teenagers and their (mostly absent) parents. One of them is spending his last day at home before leaving for war. i really liked how the film played the political aspect of war versus the "war at home". acting is great. the cast is great! Melissa Leo, one of my favorite actresses since i've seen her in 21 Grams is fabulous. But everyone in this cast is doing a great job and i am sure you will hear/see some of the names again. A really strong and emotional film. Go see it if you have the chance.
