Warm, Engaging, Educational and just plain Fantastic!
25 June 2012 | by jesseleerhodesSee all my reviews

Warm, Engaging, Educational and just plain Fantastic! I saw The Harimaya Bridge at the Sacramento Japanese Film Festival in 2011. All I can say is 'WOW'! I am an African-American male, veteran who now lives in Japan so this movie answered a lot of questions for me. It also helped prepare me for my new life in Japan.

I immediately started sharing it with every veteran I know, because of its rich content.

Director Aaron Woolfolk hit a home-run with The Harimaya Bridge.

I think the thing that sticks out about this film for me is Mr. Woolfolk's international spirit. The Harimaya Bridge was filmed in Japan and the United States. Mr. Woolfolk was able to build bridges between two countries, make a film that deals with very sensitive topics for both countries and do it all with grace.

Great job Mr. Woolfolk. I am looking forward to your future films!
