I was pretty surprised to see the high rating for this film here. But I did like it, it was not perfect but it was a good film. It was gritty and violent but I didn't find it that too disturbing. It was a very fast-paced film and there was no real pause to catch my breath. I was quite immersed in this movie and I did like it. The setting was great, and I found it more realistic than some other war movies. Overall I found it to be a good film, I enjoyed it a lot, and I would recommend it.

I don't want to give away any more details of the story. But this movie is very emotional and touching. It is a true story about people who survived the war. It tells about the various ways in which the survivors cope with their fate. It tells the story of the young man who lived through the ordeal. I highly recommend this movie for anyone who can't handle emotionally powerful movies.

I really like this movie, it was so real and very interesting. But it is one of those movies that you want to watch again and again and again and again. I recommend to anyone who likes a good story that will change your life. The story is very powerful, because in the beginning it shows us that the whole world is very dark and very different. Then it shows us that in the end it is the same. That the good and the bad are the same. I think the point of the movie is not to show us all the things that are bad in the world. It is to show us how we are not a good person, that we can be. We can change ourselves, that we can be good, that we can be decent. But, in the end it is the same thing.

As a Holocaust survivor, I feel obliged to comment on this movie. It tells the story of a man who lives in the shadow of the Holocaust, and sees the horrors of war. It is a fascinating story, and, as such, it deserves the highest accolades it can receive. I watched it for the first time today, and was surprised to find myself immediately attracted to this film. As I was watching the film, I couldn't help but feel that, as a man of Jewish heritage, I had a more intimate understanding of the events in this film than I had previously had. At no time, I felt that I had been witness to the horrors of the holocaust. I have felt much less sympathy for those who were involved in the holocaust than I have for those who were not involved. I have never felt that I had seen anything in the holocaust that I didn't know. I have never felt a strong emotional connection to the story of the holocaust. The film, however, leaves me feeling very strongly. It has impacted me on a profound level, and I am very grateful for that.

This movie has many layers and a story that's so complex and captivating. It's also just a beautiful film, with beautiful actors. I think that this movie will be able to move you and make you think about your own situation. The war itself is very realistic. You'll feel like you're there. I really like that the movie depicts the war as a human war, instead of a human war against war. Overall, the movie is one of my favorites.

I remember that I had to sit through one hour of boring sleep and then I was interrupted by this movie. The movie I watched was one of the best movies I have ever seen. I had never heard of this movie before I saw it, but now I am watching it and am really loving it. I really don't know what to say. All I can say is that the people who made this movie are really great. I never really thought of them as a good movie makers, but now I can say that they are really great. They had such a great idea in the movie and I can't say that I enjoyed it all the way. I felt that there were too many places in the movie that were so long. I found the whole movie to be boring. I liked the movie and I loved it, but I didn't like it all the way. I like movies that have the idea of making people think and to have them believe that there is some other world. I really liked this movie, but I have to say that I liked it even more. I like the idea of making people think and it makes people believe that there is something out there. That is a great idea. I recommend this movie to anyone. It is really good and I love it.

This is a wonderful film, with a superb cast and an outstanding story. The only criticism I can find is that it doesn't seem to end well, but I'm sure it's because it's an allegory. The film opens with one man's (Sam Elliott) second (or first) traumatic experience in Iraq and that was the only time he had seen a female combatant. It would be hard to imagine an ordinary man or woman in their position having such an experience and the fact that there is no action taken by the US Army to try to cover up what was happening to them. Then we are presented with the only survivor of the soldier's family: his wife (Rita Hayworth). She is a broken woman with a husband who is continually falling down and has no family. He was also not in the army and for reasons unknown, his wife did not know he was in combat. He goes to see her on his first day of basic training and it is obvious she has been through hell. She sees him in pain, being beat up by fellow soldiers, having a gun pointed at his head, having his face smashed in by an iron bar and then being told to get a new one. The question is: What would you do? The answer, for her, is to leave her husband and move on to a new man. She takes him to the hospital and we see her carefully avoiding other soldiers. The son comes in and the wife tells him to be careful when he is with her and that the soldiers who are to go with him are going to be more aggressive. This is the first time we see the son's face and the first time we see him act so differently from his father. The son says, 'He's a Marine. He's fighting for the USA. He can't just abandon us.' That is the moment the film changes from a realistic movie about a man's experiences to an allegory about the relationship between an individual and the people he or she is related to.

A film about the brutality of war has rarely been done, and this film is very well done. The story focuses on a few characters who have to go through very tough experiences. The story revolves around the lives of three French soldiers who have to face a horrible situation. The story is well told, and the performances are excellent. The camera is well used, and the editing is very professional. The cinematography was also very well done, and the direction is very professional. The acting was very good, and the story was very good. If you liked War and Peace, you should see this film.

This movie reminds me of the classic French film Le Ladron which is about the fates of the soldiers of Napoleon in 1804. The movie is well directed. The actors are very good, the camera is accurate and the music is perfect. The script is good, but it is hard to translate it. It's a very interesting story, with a very complicated ending.

This film is one of the best "war movies" I have ever seen, and I watched it before I got an English language CD with subtitles in it. The movie shows the real meaning of the term "crusade" and "wars". It is just as beautiful as a book can be, and it is as funny. There are many scenes of the war that I would like to have in my collection. The best of the movie is the scene in which I found the best impression of the horror of the war. A wonderful scene of the film is when a man was killed, and I was moved by it. I was shocked by the scene and my feelings increased in intensity. The scene I like best is when the narrator asked "is this war worth it?". I think that the filmmaker wanted to say that war is horrible and we should all learn from it. I am really moved by this movie, and I recommend it to everybody. I give it 9/10.

I'm not a big fan of movies based on historical events, so I was looking forward to watching this one. I was impressed by the realism and the bravery of the young soldiers. The British fighting style and the uniforms of the Royal Australian Infantry are perfect for the role. The colours and the uniforms in the sepia tone of the camera work really helps to create a great sense of mood and atmosphere. I'm not a huge fan of war movies, but I really enjoyed this one. If you like movies based on history, you should definitely watch this one. It's a must-see.

A great film. The film has a very unique way of presenting the events and the characters. The film is full of beautiful images and colors. It is full of dialogue and expression and reminds me of a painting, if you will. This film is not really a documentary film, but a film about the people, the memories, the daily struggles. It is a wonderful movie, as good as "Places on the Edge of Town" or "The Final Years".

I loved this film. The world it portrays is extremely complex and it is hard to imagine how they could make such a mistake. As a teacher, I had to comment on this film. First, I'd like to say that it is hard to be a teacher and keep your job. I know that my students have more discipline than I have. Second, I would like to say that these guys were not at all influenced by this film. This is how things work in our society. Third, I would like to say that people who watch this film will either see a reflection of their life, their own thoughts and emotions or maybe their own hypocrisy. I hope they appreciate it and do not make the same mistakes I made in my own life.

This is a beautiful film with very effective acting, an interesting storyline, and superb cinematography. It is the kind of movie you don't want to miss. Also, the direction by Alexandre Aja is simply excellent. It is a movie that I think everyone can enjoy, no matter how they feel about war. It is a must-see, for all of us who care about the "emotional" aspects of war. I hope Aja will be nominated for the Academy Award for his "I Am Not a Serial Killer."

I love this movie. It's sad, it's smart, and it has a great story. It's just great.

It was with this movie that I was first introduced to Jean-Pierre Melville. The man created one of the most iconic characters of all time and the movie that brought him to the mainstream. And by the time I became aware of his movies I had already been a fan of the one's who carried on his tradition of creating a humane, fair and truthful depiction of war. The film The Longest Day is no exception. What it lacks in the grandeur of the setting it makes up for with a sense of respect and realism. By that I mean that it conveys an atmosphere of unease and that creates a great feeling of unease. It is an excellent movie to watch for anyone who loves to watch movies with an atmosphere of unease and is looking for an excellent piece of work.

The Italian director Dario Argento is known for his surrealism, but in this film, he really shows us that he's much more than that. The film opens in the 1940s, but what's before is the story of a soldier in a village named Caporetto. The son of a powerful man, he's one of the young men who resist the demands of the villagers to be "civilized". In the end, his life is destroyed by the Germans. But in his last moments he says that his father is dead and he's gone to heaven, "He's gone to Heaven!". So, he's lost everything he has, and is almost done with his life. The camera stays on him as he talks to his father, telling him that he's going to die. The scene goes on, and on, and on. His face changes. He's not the same man anymore. But as the credits roll, his eyes, his body, his voice, everything about him is the same, and we can't help but feel the same. The voice is the same. It's clear that the actor is the same, the color and the voice are the same. But everything is the same, including the rest of the characters. This movie is a huge achievement and I hope that Argento will make more movies like this one, and make more films of this sort. He really does show us that he's a true filmmaker. (This review contains spoilers.) 9/10

Truly the most powerful movie ever made. The contrast of horror, the brutality of war, the hope and the hope of the survivors. This movie is something I recommend to everyone who is curious about the conflict and is interested in the human condition. The message of the movie is of course, that we can still fight for what we want, even when we know that the outcome is bound to be bad. I saw this movie with my friend, and we both cried with each other after the end of the movie, and we wanted to see it again.

The French film's moral is simple and timeless: we are the best, we have to be the best, and in the end the best wins out. This is a powerful movie that is rarely seen, and it's hard to see it unless you live in France. It is also an uncommonly strong film, with a gripping story, outstanding performances, and some of the most intense action you'll see in a war film. The narrative is both direct and indirect, with a complex web of clues connecting the main characters. The main theme is the necessity of courage, and how we can only prevail if we don't hesitate, and how the enemy can defeat us by weakening our strength. The only flaw is that it's too short. It's almost perfect.
