It is NOT a documentary - it is a MOVIE about war.
I read these reviews and some seem more concerned that the film be educational and politically correct. This film is fiction, and a damn good story about how people react to stress and loss. It could be ANY WAR, and that is the issue. A EXCELLENT movie about people, and not so much a National Geo special.
The characters are real, the story plausible, and at the end of the day it tells a story of conflict and not to heroic survival.
The film is frank and graphic, I am avoiding spoilers, but you should see this movie. It shows a side of us all that we need to see.
One of the thing that this find does is to put you in the place of the characters, you find yourself asking what would I do.
