Hero (2000)

Short yet powerful, 15 April 2001
8/10

A short yet powerful reminder of how human nature can break through the boundaries of hatred, even in difficult circumstances.

This movie tells the story of an American World War 2 sergeant who helps to bury the body of a German officer, after he comes across a woman who's husband has committed suicide.

This film deals with some extremely powerful issues, and the producers go well beyond the typical Hollywood treatment of such subjects.

Given the complexity of the issues that this film deals with, it does so effectively and succinctly using minimal dialog, for maximum effect.

Great performances from Julianne Nicholson and Alan Gelfant.
