Amazing Touching Film
25 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was asked to watch this film and give my review, and I have to say that not only was I amazed at how much is done with so few resources ($$), but that the acting from the kids on up, was on a par with any studio film. Deep and emotional, I cried, I was outraged, I was sad, I was enlightened. One of the best Anti-War films, or maybe more to the point, WHAT WAR IS and how every soldier is scarred in some way shape or form. Vietnam was a pointless war, and that men were sent to kill innocent people, and did, and then when they returned, we shunned then, is a tragedy all by itself. Thanks to all who made this film. Since we are still at war in Afghanistan, we should pay attention.
