Excellent movie that more people should see
10 May 2018 | by AudreyHammSee all my reviews

Having seen this film a couple times, I absolutely love it. The story is intense and poignantly told through great acting and filmmaking. There is even authentic humor amidst the horrible circumstances that allow audiences to identify with characters from all sides. The music is also quite excellent. It's complex, beautifully shot, and absolutely gripping with standout performances throughout. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the subject, as well as anyone interested in the subtle (yet very real) human dramas that unfold for soldiers/ families/ kids in the presence of combat and religious conflict.
