On balance, an original story about a predictable situation
31 August 2007 | by (Philly) – See all my reviews

Full disclosure: I'm caucasian, married into an Asian family, although not a Japanese one. This film is well-done, well-acted, well-written and fair to both sides. The sides are the Japanese- Americans, v. the Townies, which includes the garrison guarding the camp. The obvious tension is there, but it's not universal: some locals are twisted cracker jerks; some are decent people. The inmates, male and female, are genuine victims of injustice, so our sympathy generally moves in one direction, appropriately. The story is of the adjustments the Japanese- Americans make for their captors, and the manner in which one interracial couple adjusts to falling in love and growing up in a situation as distorted as an internment camp. It's all believable, the dialogue is good and believable, and the film is well worth seeing. And it's subtitled in the right places.
