In June 1944, twelve Japanese seaman are stranded on an abandoned-and-forgotten island called An-ta-han for seven years. The island's only inhabitants are the overseer of the abandoned plantation and an attractive young Japanese woman. Discipline is represented by a former warrant officer but ends when he suffers a loss-of-face catastrophe. Soon, discipline and rationality are replaced by a struggle for power and the woman. Power is represented by a pair of pistols found in the wreckage of an American airplane, so important that five men pay for their lives in a bid for supremacy.

After reading some of the negative reviews for this movie I decided to give it a try. I must say I was very impressed. I'm very impressed with the way this movie was made. The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous. The set design was great, the costumes and sets were superb. The acting is quite good. All the characters were developed very well. All of the characters are portrayed realistically. You don't feel like you are watching a movie, but more like you are in the movie. The only problem I have with the movie is that it could have been longer. It was very slow at times. I think I could have sat through it twice and then I could have watched it again. Overall I would give this movie a 9 out of 10. It was a great movie and I hope it gets a wider release.

The movie had a lot of attention on it and I've seen it and I really like it. The film was very beautiful and a very good job done. The acting was very good and the story is very good. I think it's very nice that they made this movie and made a movie about a genocide that took place in Iran during the 1970's. This movie is very interesting and very good. I think that the movie was a very good one and a very good movie.

I saw this film in the Netherlands, as part of the Amsterdam Film Festival. The film is based on a book by the same name. It is very moving and hard to watch at times. I didn't know what to expect of the film. I found it very interesting, and I am very interested in the whole film. The film has two main characters. The first one is Ayesha Siddique. She is a girl from a middle class family. She is very shy, and she is very religious. She has a very strict father and a mother who is very strict with her. She is very kind and caring. She loves her brother, who is a lot younger than she is. The other main character is Abhimanyu Sahay, a boy from the lower classes. He is a very shy and depressed boy, and he has a mother who is very strict with him. He is very loving and kind. The film focuses on the relationship between Ayesha and Abhimanyu. They are two very different characters, and they make the film very interesting. The film is about love, forgiveness, sacrifice, and loss. The story is very interesting and the film is very emotional. The ending is very sad, but it is very moving. I really enjoyed the film. It is very well made and the actors are very good. The film has a very strong message about forgiveness and love. I am very interested in the story of the film. I am looking forward to see the film again in the Netherlands. The film is not a religious film, it is about forgiveness and love. The film is very well made, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject.

I really enjoyed this movie. The story is about a group of soldiers in the Iraq war. The army has been put to the test in a very difficult situation. The soldiers are desperate for a reason to fight. They are forced to fight for a cause that they know nothing about. One of the soldiers has a family to support. One of the soldiers feels that he has been betrayed by the other soldiers. He feels that he has no one to blame but himself. He is not the only one who has problems. Everyone has a reason to fight. There is no such thing as a reason. Everyone is fighting for a cause. This movie was very realistic. The way the soldiers fought for their cause is very realistic. This movie shows the reality of war. This is a movie that shows the realities of war.

This film is a masterful portrayal of a "refugee" situation. As a "refugee" myself, I can say that the portrayal of the "refugee" is spot on. The "refugee" is not a nice guy, but he is in fact a "refugee" and is in fact one of the most persecuted people in the world. In my opinion, this film is the best representation of the "refugee" situation in the world. If you haven't seen it yet, you should definitely see it. I can't wait to see it again. A MUST SEE.

As a history student, I have seen some movies that I felt were too hard to watch. This movie was the first one I ever watched. It has changed my perspective on war and how we can stop it. It is definitely one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I feel like I have to watch it at least twice to fully understand it.

The movie is not so much about what is happening in Afghanistan, but about the people living there, their hopes, their fears, their ambitions, and the love they feel for their homeland. As the story unfolds, we find out that the Afghan government is not very concerned about the people of Afghanistan. The people in Afghanistan have never had a government, they are ruled by their tribes, by their families, and by their tribal elders. When the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, the government made a deal with the Taliban. The government would be in charge of Afghanistan and the Taliban would control the people of Afghanistan. This agreement was broken by the Taliban and the government is forced to evacuate all the people of Afghanistan from their homes. The people of Afghanistan are forced to live in the United States, and many of them end up in shelters. Many of the people of Afghanistan flee to the United States. The movie shows the people of Afghanistan, their hopes, their fears, their aspirations, and their love for their homeland. The movie also shows the people of Afghanistan as they have grown and become stronger. The movie shows how the people of Afghanistan were forced to leave their homeland and how they have grown stronger and become more powerful. This movie was a great story, and a great movie. I highly recommend it to anyone.

I have been a fan of the Iranian cinema since the mid-80s and I can say that this movie has changed my outlook on this country. This movie is about the consequences of the Iranian revolution and it shows the ramifications of a revolution. The characters are very interesting, the soundtrack is great and the actors did a fantastic job. I have seen the movie 2 times now and I cannot get it out of my head. I strongly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in cinema, history, politics, war, or just needs to see a great movie.

This movie is a must-see. I enjoyed it very much and can't wait to see it again. It's an interesting story and the acting is superb. It's just a shame that the music was not used to its full potential. It would have made this movie a perfect 10.

I have never seen the movie before but I am happy to say that it is one of the most thought provoking films I have ever seen. This is the kind of movie that you can watch multiple times and still have something to think about after the end. The movie is about an Afghani man who goes through a divorce and becomes a Christian. He lives in India and tries to get his brother to go to America to be with him. He is a man who has faith and loves the Lord. The film also shows the effects of the conflict in the Middle East and how some people choose to leave the country and come to America. The director has a great eye for detail and makes sure that the events are as authentic as possible. This is not just a film about one man's journey to Christianity but also a film about the effects of war on the innocent people of the world. This is a film that I think you should see.

I am a proud Persian and this movie was a great inspiration for me to learn more about Persian culture and to appreciate the Iranian people. The cinematography was great, the acting was great, and the plot was brilliant. I am not a fan of Hollywood, but this movie had the right mix of Hollywood and Persian culture. I was touched by the acting and the plot. The ending was also fantastic, and the message that this movie gave was powerful. I also liked the colors in the movie, especially the colors of the Iranian people. I would recommend this movie to anyone. I would love to see more movies like this in the future.

I liked this movie a lot, but I would say that it was not as good as the one from the 90s. I liked the fact that it was very slow and boring, it was not too emotional or too dramatic, and there were no big explosions or intense battles, and the actors were good. The story was interesting and the acting was great, but I think that the part with the daughter was really weak. I think that it could have been better if the mother was in it, because then it would have been more emotional and dramatic. I think that this movie was very good, but it could have been better if the mother was in it. Overall, this is a good movie that I would recommend to everyone, it is very slow and boring, but it is very good, and the acting was good. 9/10

A remarkable film about the role of women in a time of war, about the brutality of war and the brutality of life in the trenches. The acting is superb, the script is solid and the direction is superb. The most powerful part of this film is the performance by the actor who plays the commander. The film is a perfect example of how a war film should be made, and should be seen by everyone.

I had never heard of this film before and I don't really know what to think about it. It looks like a film with a few minor flaws but otherwise is quite a good film. The main reason I liked this film is because it is so realistic. It shows how a young man can change from a young boy into a man who has to be a soldier. The acting was very good and the story was good. It had some drama, some action and some romance. This film is not a war film, it is a film about a young man's life. I liked it very much. I give it a 9/10.

I found this movie a very satisfying experience, and I'm glad I finally found it. It is a moving, and sometimes humorous look at the war, the Japanese occupation, and the consequences of the war. The acting is superb, and the message is very powerful. I also felt the love and respect for the American soldiers, and I appreciated the messages that were given in the film, especially to the Japanese soldiers. I also thought the message that was given about the Japanese prisoners was also powerful. This movie is very good, and very realistic. I hope that it gets better distribution in the United States. I highly recommend this movie.

The story is of a young girl who lives in a village in Turkey. One day, her family is attacked by a group of soldiers, and her father is taken away. The girl stays with her aunt. Soon, the aunt is killed, and the girl is left to fend for herself. Her uncle, a farmer, is taken away by the army, and she is left alone. The uncle is so nice to the girl, that she tries to protect him from the soldiers, and she learns that he is not who he claims to be. She is a very young girl, and she does not know how to fight back. She is not a good fighter, and she has to rely on her family. The film is really good. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has seen "My Life as a Dog" or "My Left Foot".

This is a great movie and a very important movie.I have seen this movie and it is one of the best movies I have ever seen.It is a story about a man who lost his mother and he was sent to a small village in Turkey and he never got to know her. He never got to see her again and he has always been thinking about her. He found out that he was a prisoner of war and he was just a soldier. But one day his wife got a letter from her mother telling him that he was going to be freed. The story was very emotional. I have never seen a movie that so perfectly showed how we are humans and how we are not only an animal, but how we are all the same.The movie is very sad and the actors and actresses did a great job.The movie was very emotional. The movie was very good. It is a great movie.I recommend you to watch this movie.I give 9/10.

A movie that keeps you in suspense till the very end, that is a must watch. This movie is about two brothers, who have never seen their mother or father. They have to live with their own families, which doesn't have a single father or mother. The one brother is an army officer and the other is a military cadet. They have to get through their life and make their parents proud. It is a very well made movie with a good script, acting and direction. The whole movie is about the people, the movie is not just about war. You will not get bored at any point in the movie. The movie is a very good movie to watch in the cinema. I give it 9/10. Highly recommend.
