It's the best strategy film I've seen, except perhaps "The Godfather - trilogy" and it's in many ways similar to the game "Shogun", only this one it's a lot more personal, making you reflect at the never-ending complexity of life.
There are some improbable twists in the movie,but those give it a more personal touch and after all,without those turns, the movie would be plain sad.
The "Art of war" at home, where it was first elaborated and applied - magnificent.
You should definitely see this one.
