Powerful Film
21 September 2002 | by TedMMorgan314See all my reviews

The first few minutes of this film emerge as one of the most exciting and moving in the history of film. After the haircut, turn off the movie and watch something else. However, don't miss the first minutes of this film. A necessary addition to any collector's library.
