This just moved above Bicycle Thief, Once Were Warriors, Once Upon a Time in America and Godfather. Seriously, never seen anything like this. Wow. I'm in awe. Wow. This is the best. Historic. Seriously. I don't know this culture very well, but the humanism displayed here, the friendship, the stupidity and the loyalty is so realistic...at least I hope so. The acting is beyond sublime, the story so poignant. Just watch. I have no idea why I haven't heard of this story before. Swampy. Devout. Loyal. Surprising. Surprising. Surprising. Heart warming. Disturbing. Concerning. I've now used too many words to describe what is a perfect piece of art. Just watch this film.
