A story that everyone should hear.
26 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Don't expect the same big post-production budgets, or strong political agendas associated with most of the films in this genre. "The Corporal's Diary" is a straight forward story of hopes, dreams, & the impact people can have on each other.

Hours have passed since I watched it, and I am still unable to find words that will convey my feelings. Simply put, this is something that everyone needs to see, despite how emotionally difficult it will be to sit through.

It's the most moving tale I have heard in along time.

Thank you.
