Wow, was this a roller coaster of high spirits and deep sorrows and despair. youre lured into the trap by some of the best wittyness,then you take a dive into darkest grieves ever viewing this film

its a film about war-veterans, a man they call Ghost,who talks to a ghost/spirit that died in action who were Ghosts best friend. the dead ghost works as a buffer against psychological despair and the dangers of snapping in a life as homeless and moneyless war veteran.

to draw a historical line to norwegian war history, we have the story of the bad treatment and lack of gratitude towards the merchant sailors who worked for the norwegian/allied NORTRASHIP company convoing petrol and war material for the allies during the second world war. they werent granted any pensions as war veterans,because the company were civil and therefore not navy mariners. my grandfather who worked as a coal shuffler on the steam engine, lived through 2 torpedo attacks in the icy waters of the north atlantic,he survived and became a great burden for the state of norway through all the years till his death in 1992. he was granted a medal in 1991 from the king of norway as thanks for your services ( and we hope you die soon), as he did the year after with a hunchback full of mental disorders and extreme memories in his backpack. a disgrace it is anywhere and anyhow or anywhen. give them what you owe them, they are really ill and badly damaged and in many cases cannot go backto a normal way of life , like we who have shadowed away from the war zone can, with normal jobs etc. i experienced war flashbacks in my grandfather especially in the first years of his last 10 years living with alzheimers-disease(-d).and that was cruel stuff, believe me. if i was a rich man i would have given what i could to help, maybe the microsoft founder could spare a bit of his Bill to help them out of the Gates of hell.

max martini as sgt will gardner, are trully and sincere an academy award winner for best male actor with and through this film. max, if you read this, you owe me a handkerchief for sure,for all the tears and snott you caused, when watching your film. no wonder they thought you were bryan cranston,you really do act like the one. not to underestimate the rest of the cast who made this a memorable moment of movie watching.

as a film product its a smooth biketrip of soothing music, beautiful filmography, thouroughly done editing,and mysterious use of light. a thought that hit me is that it could have been dug even deeper in the materie of the topic

it is highly recommended
