amazing. Much better then Hollywood movies.
13 March 2011 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I was shocked. This movie is one the best movie i have ever watched. Not simply war or fighting or killing. This movie far from them. It contains love, tear, fear, hope. It is not like typical Hollywood movies such violence, blood and killing. This movie shows us what the people feel during mid-night on a unknown mountains. Excellent story, amazing visual effects and unbelievable performance. I give 20 point out of 10. Maker of this movie got excellent work. Loves from Japan.

IMDb stuffs you guys are stupid. Why do you force people to write something more then 10 lines. Fu ck all of you. Send my fuc king regards who decided this rule.
