Informative Documentary
8 December 2018 | by cwcamperSee all my reviews

I liked the way this documentary explored and kept a focus on the differing views the Japanese and the Americans' hold regarding teaching/remembering WWII history and their country's role. Maybe it's understandable due to their side losing the war. I believe the quest to find the original owners' family was a worthwhile effort and for that one family, it may have mattered. Yes, this is a real human interest story, along with many historical facts, such as the value and meaning of the sword to pre-WWII generations. I highly recommend.
