Simply excellent.
31 December 2014 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Deeply touching story, amazing acting, excellent FX and war recreations. The most important is the human perspective, the individuals outside the wrong or right of the history books. You will cry seeing this movie, and its fine. I do not agree with other reviewer about being a movie to "justify" Japan. Is a movie about persons, their lives and struggles in the most horrible point of human history and human nature. I took this movie, as many other war movies, as a message to the people so they understand this is the horror of war and how it affects people like you, this would happen to you or your people, this is what happened, happens and will happen. Outside the big story of battles, strategy, the macro history, the little stories of the persons, no matters which side. I'll save this movie next to Letters from Iwo Jima and Ünsere Mutter, Ünsere Vätter.
