Amazing Film!
23 June 2007 | by k_arent_leeSee all my reviews

This film is quite simply one of the most amazing documentaries I've ever seen. I didn't know what to expect and walked out of the theater completely floored at the end. The emotional story of Megumi's parents combined with the anxiety-laden, suspenseful way the filmmakers told it makes for an excellent experience. The way the filmmakers reveal the fates of the people abducted by North Korea had me more tense than any Hollywood movie. And then to watch the families deal with their grief and anguish with such dignity. It is hard to describe in words. I can't believe Americans have never heard this story and it reminds me of all the crazy stuff that goes on in the world that we ignore or simply don't hear about. I'm eagerly awaiting the DVD now so I can get my friends to see it!
