Underrated Movie
9 May 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie is carefully written and historically accurate. It's a realistic portrayal of the suffering on both sides during the Pacific War.

Some fine performances in this one from Claire van der Boom and Sarah Snook - I hope to see these talented women in future films.

It's sad that relatively few people have seen this excellent movie, while so many more have watched garbage like the "Resident Evil" series.
