(us) wrote: Walhber, bad as always, Eric Bana, surpisingly bad aswell. This is a bad movie, about a failed mission in the middle of Afghanistan. Based on true event. Not a must see.

(us) wrote: One of my favourite Christmas movies of all time, sad in parts but great acting and a wonderful finale, perfect. A modern retelling of It's a Wonderful Life
(us) wrote: This is an amazing movie. Matt Dillon was really good at portraying Tex and I found it nice to see him play a softer more friendly role after he played Dallas Winston in The Outsiders, although he was excellent there too. I read the book and it's also very good
(au) wrote: LOVELY! It is often said that this film is different from other Ozu films mainly because the story is told through children's views, but I don't agree with that. Ozu's viewpoint never moves around - it's always like a "God's view," and it's same in this piece. It's true that the more focus is on children characters than in other works of his, and it works very well to somehow reveals both virtue and ugliness of being adults. Ozu's talent to direct a comedy is in full bloom in this film, and every scene in the film is lovely.
