I'm not sure what the hype is about this film, but it is absolutely incredible! The story is well told and the characters are absolutely real. I would compare it to the story of "The Seventh Seal" (which is much better) but it is not as good as that film. It is definitely worth seeing if you are a fan of the series or if you are a fan of the film. I give it a 9 out of 10.

Truly a masterpiece. You could feel the pain of war as a child. You could feel the joy of war as a teenager. You could feel the hatred of war as an adult. I never realized how powerful the experience of war is until I watched this movie. I couldn't help but cry when I realized the pain the people went through. I cried for the women and men who died in World War II. I cried for the children who were killed. I cried for the Japanese. I cried for the Germans. I cried for all of the human beings who were involved in World War II. There are not words to express how powerful this movie is. I hope that everyone who watches it will have a good experience of war. I hope that people will think about the things that they did and the things that they didn't do in World War II. I hope that the memory of war will not be a part of the minds of people who watch this movie. The greatest thing about this movie is that it's based on true events. It's a movie that anyone should watch. It's a movie that everyone should see. It's a movie that will bring tears to your eyes.

I saw this movie at a special screening in London and I think it's a beautiful piece of cinema. It's a good way to show how war affects people, even if you don't believe in it. It's very important to understand what war is like. I think the most important thing to do is to watch it with your family. It's not just a war movie, but a human drama, too. I'm glad the Japanese people won't see this movie as a propaganda and say "we can do it better than them" and that's exactly what the Japanese people have done. They've shown the reality of war and it's a lesson that should be learned by all.

This movie is definitely one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is full of great dialogue and the story is very moving. I really think that the director did an excellent job of telling this story. There is a lot of violence and the actors are very good at playing their characters. I think that there is a lot of realism in this movie. The characters in this movie are very realistic, because they live in a world where there is war, and they are not very popular. They live in a small village with a very small population, and they live a very simple life. But one day, they are caught in a battle. And their lives change completely. I think that this movie is very good. I would highly recommend it to anyone. This movie is definitely one of the best movies I have ever seen.

I think this movie is a very important film in the history of Japan. It's not a happy movie. It is an emotional and realistic film about a war. It's a story about a man who feels responsible for his country, but is at the same time a victim of the war. I think this movie shows us that war is not the only thing we can be responsible for. We can be responsible for ourselves. I hope that every movie maker will make more movies like this one.

After seeing this movie I have to say that it is the best I've seen since the last Mowgli movie, "The Jungle Book". It is also the first film that I've seen that doesn't have an English title and an English voice-over. The only thing that really bugged me about this movie was that the last 10 minutes were almost unbearable. I have never seen the Japanese version, so I don't know if it is the same or if it is better. I also didn't understand the lines they were using in this movie, so I just figured they were just bad. The story was great and the ending was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in a movie. This movie is the reason I'm still a Disney fan, and I'm glad that I gave it a chance. Disney should be proud of this movie, because it has everything that Disney should have had in the first place. The Disney theme song, the animation, the amazing characters, and the story. This movie is the reason why Disney is the number one movie in Japan. It is also the reason why Japanese animation is the number one movie in the world. This movie is a must see.

My husband and I loved this movie, even though it was for young kids. We didn't want it to be a little heavy, but this movie kept us smiling and cheering. It had a lot of depth and we found it very entertaining. The fact that the movie took place in a remote village and the beauty of the landscapes and the way that they were filmed, gave the movie a very European feel. I also really liked how the movie was told from the perspective of a few people, like a village elder or a priest. There were also many scenes where we could see the animals, the forests, the fields, and the way that the trees and flowers moved. I was impressed by the way that the movie was told and the way that it was made. I thought that the acting was excellent. It was a very good movie. I would recommend it to all the family and friends.

As far as I know, this film is the only Japanese movie I have ever seen that is based on a children's book. Although I do not know if this film is accurate, I do not care. The message of the film is simply "make your own destiny." Everyone is given the opportunity to choose their own destiny. The film, although it is short, is so realistic that I feel that I would be able to make my own destiny. The story is really that simple, and the film is so powerful that you can not help but cry. There are so many children that have witnessed war, but they are still innocent. The father's death, the war, and the children's choices are what will make or break their lives. In the end, they have to make their own destiny, and they do not have a choice. It is not a simple lesson, but it is a message that is not only for the children, but also for everyone.

I thought the Japanese version of War and Peace was a great film. This film was on the other side of the coin. I really enjoyed it and the Japanese version was much better. The first film was a good film but the second one was more of a story about war and peace. The Japanese version was more of a story about war and peace. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because it was very slow. This is a film you will not forget and you will not watch it often. If you are a fan of the Japanese version you should watch it.

I am a huge fan of Kurosawa's work, and I was looking forward to this film as it was one of the best films I've seen this year. However, I was sorely disappointed by the film. I think this is due to the fact that this film did not adhere to the vision of the director and the writer. The ending was totally out of place and the main character was completely out of place. I did not like this movie. I think this film is one of the worst films I've ever seen, and I am disappointed in the way this film was made.

This is a masterpiece of a film. It's amazing, breathtaking, and beautifully shot. It's the perfect example of a movie that has been made by the way it is, not by how it was. The story is very original and has a very interesting plot. It's not very predictable, and that's what makes it so good. It has a very great story, very interesting characters, and it's not boring at all. It's extremely touching, and very inspiring. The acting is great, the story is very original, and the score is really good. It's very impressive, and that's what makes it so good. The only thing I did not like about the film was the story. It's very original, but it's not very good. It's too emotional, and it's very slow. But if you're a fan of movies like this, I really recommend it.

Well, I was actually expecting to be disappointed after reading some of the comments about the story. But, I was so wrong. I just have to say that it was the most interesting movie I have seen in a while. The main character is like a comic book character, the violence is done as if you were watching an action movie. I was afraid I would be disappointed by the storyline, but it was actually very good. I think the movie has the right tone, and it is well shot. You won't be bored. I like the fact that it is told from the perspective of a young girl, with lots of flashbacks and everything. If you like the movies of the young genius director Hayao Miyazaki, then this is a must see. I don't think I will be disappointed.

This is a very sad movie. In the first 10 minutes, the movie is so sad, I was thinking that I will never watch a movie ever again. I still don't understand why it is rated so highly. But it is a must-watch. This is a movie about the horrors of war, and the despair of the Japanese people, who is forced to kill other people, to survive. The movie is so realistic and sad. I think that people must watch it, just to understand the pain of the Japanese people. The movie is like a documentary about the horrors of war. There are no happy moments in the movie, there are no good-looking characters, and there are no heroes. But the movie is very important. It should be watched.

One of the most beautiful and the most profound films I have seen in my entire life. It shows that war and love can not be separated. The film was incredibly violent and I would say disturbing, but it is also very touching. I will definitely recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of the manga, or anime.

Crystal photo

I have seen the manga adaptation of this movie. It's a great movie, but in my opinion the original manga is the best. I know there are people who are mad that they don't like the movie, but I can't see why. It's a movie about a woman who is not very well off. It is not a movie about war or war in general. The movie deals with the trauma of war and the issues that come with it. I think that the movie is very realistic. I would love to see the movie on the big screen, because it is a good movie. I hope that you will like the movie.

This movie was completely wrong in every aspect. The dialogue is horrible, the characters are dull, and the story is full of holes. It's like a bad film school project, and the director's wife must have liked it. It's not a good movie at all. It's a complete waste of time.

I've always loved the anime series, but this movie had me in tears, even though I knew it was going to be a great movie. I've never really seen the manga, but I'm really glad I read the manga. I really recommend it to anyone who loves anime.

As with the very last movie of Studio Ghibli, the first installment of the fantastic Studio Ghibli trilogy, "My Neighbors the Yamadas" is a very poignant and moving film that has been given the proper treatment by the Academy. The movie is beautifully shot and has a truly brilliant screenplay that shows the strength of the writers. The story is about two children, who are separated in a large Japanese family. They both live in the same neighborhood, which is divided in two parts by a river. One of the children lives in a small house in the river side, and the other child lives in a big house on the other side. The mother and father of both children are very jealous of their neighbors, and the film is about how their resentments grow to the point that they kill the children. One of the kids is played by Uki Kukata. His performance is very good. His face is expressive and sad, but also sad when he is angry. The other child is played by the wonderfully young Adriana Casillas. She has a very expressive face and is very expressive when she is angry. The character of the mother is played by Naoko Takeuchi, and her performance is also very good. She is very expressive and intense when she is angry, and also very expressive when she is sad. The film is a very good story about a very real situation. The last shot of the film is very strong and moving, and the message is also very strong. The message is that we have to stay away from violence and hatred and to stand together as a family. It is not a message that is new or that is new to the audience, but the message is powerful. It is a very powerful film that shows the strong relationship between children and their parents. The characters are all great. It is an excellent family film that is beautifully shot, and the performances are all great.

Saw this movie as a screening at the Cinema in Brooklyn last week. It was so good. I liked how it portrayed a bunch of people who have suffered because of WWII. It also had a good story. The acting was great. It was so beautiful to see a bunch of people who were not just scared, but also incredibly brave. The battles were well done. I especially liked the dogfights and the special effects were awesome. I will definitely be watching this movie again. The movie was a great way to deal with WWII. I recommend this movie to everyone.

The setting is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. You can't even tell where the country is. I found the fact that it was shot entirely on location extremely interesting. The sound design is quite unique. I would have preferred the background sound to have been used more. I don't think the filmmakers could have done it better. The acting is really good. The characters have depth. The dialogue is very strong. The ending is very surprising. I give this film a 9 out of 10.

I'm a big fan of Japanese animation. I have watched a lot of them, and have some favorites. I've seen this movie several times, and every time I am pleasantly surprised. I first saw it on the plane to Japan and I was totally blown away. I couldn't believe my eyes. This movie is so perfect. It's truly a masterpiece. The story is simple, yet powerful. The characters are likable and memorable, the animation is stunning, and the plot is engrossing. This movie is perfect, and deserves to be watched. **SPOILERS** *SPOILERS** *SPOILERS**I will try not to give away the plot, as it will spoil the story for you if you don't know. The story is about a family of six, and their battle against an enemy that's more powerful than them. This is a family of six, and their battle against an enemy that's more powerful than them. The characters are great. I'm sure you know who each character is, but you'll still recognize them. The characters are great, because they are all likable and memorable. Each character has a purpose and is known by their name. I have to admit that there are a few characters that I didn't really like. The commander of the enemy army, and the girl he was with at the beginning of the movie. These characters are weak, and didn't really have any depth to them. I don't know why, but I think they were a little unnecessary. But, if you like this movie, then I'm sure you'll love the story. This movie is definitely worth a watch.

I watched this movie with my daughter who is 12 years old. She was amazed at how this movie is an allegory about the genocide in the Japanese war. She was also impressed that the children in the movie are not racist against the Japanese, but they are just looking for a safe place to live. They did not want to go to war and were not motivated by hatred. This is a wonderful movie and I highly recommend it to all my friends. I have seen this movie over and over again, and I still love it.

From director Takashi Miike comes an excellent movie about the nature of war, the war in general, and the nature of love. The story revolves around a young boy, named Harumichi (Toshiyuki Konishi), who is sent to the front line to fight against the enemy. Upon his arrival, he is quickly captivated by the beauty of the war-torn world, and is determined to understand it. As he grows older, he becomes more and more aware of his place in the world, and begins to question his own beliefs and ideals. The movie's most powerful and heart-wrenching scene is its first-person view of the war, when Harumichi walks through the war-ravaged streets of Tokyo. It is a powerful scene, that will change the way you think about war and the world. The movie's story is centered around the two main characters, Harumichi and Keita. The two of them are very different from each other, and the conflict between them becomes more and more obvious throughout the movie. In this movie, you see the direct path that Harumichi takes, which is very different from Keita. The movie is about how people can be affected by war, and how we must accept the consequences of war. The film is filled with amazing art and music, that will send you into a deep trance. The movie is a powerful film, and one of the best Japanese films of the year.

It's interesting that this film was written and directed by a Japanese woman. It's a fascinating look into the dehumanization of war. Although it's not a documentary, it doesn't pretend to be one. It's more like a character study of people who did a very dangerous thing. I am not a great fan of war films, but this one is well done. The way it's shot is amazing. I love how they give it a very abstract look. It's very beautiful and calming. This is the film that I wish would have been made, but it never was.

I watched this movie on Netflix. I watched it a couple times, and really enjoyed it. The acting was good, the plot was good, and the film itself was good. I don't know if it was the color, but I was able to see the girl of the same age as the girl of the original and she looked more mature and more of a serious and darker version of the original. Also the music was different, which was good because it made the movie seem different, and the actors did well with the characters. I recommend this movie to everyone, because it was good, but if you don't like it, then I don't think you're the right audience. It was good, and if you are the right audience, then you'll probably like it too.

This is a beautiful film. It's a beautiful movie, but you can tell that this movie is also very special. It was made for a very special audience, the people who are reading this. For those of you who don't know who these people are, they are Japanese who lost a friend in the war. It's very sad, and very tragic. The music is very very important. It's a very very important movie for the people who have lost a loved one in the war. It's sad, but it's also very beautiful.

Harold photo

This is a very powerful and emotional film. The story is based on a story that happened in World War 2, but the movie has a good balance of comedy, drama and action. The ending is very strong, it's not predictable at all. I highly recommend it.

I was looking forward to this movie, and to be honest I was surprised. I love samurai movies, and I'm not much of a fan of Japanese cinema. I've seen a lot of films from Japan, but nothing like this. The movie had some of the best acting I've ever seen, and the story was interesting and captivating. The main character, Hiro, was not just a bumbling idiot, he was actually a very well developed character. The dialogue between the characters was witty and witty. The action scenes were well done. I was not disappointed in this movie, and I highly recommend it. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I've seen this movie twice and it is a must see for fans of the anime. It is a deeply emotional and powerful story that will leave you in tears. This is not a movie for the faint of heart. It's not a movie for the faint of heart, but it is a movie for the most part. The two main characters are very well developed and the conflict of the story is well made. It is a story about a Japanese girl who was separated from her family and she has to deal with the loss of her family. It is a story about how one is forced to deal with the loss of a loved one and how one deals with the loss of a loved one. The story is very powerful and it is very difficult to watch the movie without crying. The story is a part of Japanese culture and so is the theme of the movie. It is very interesting and it is one of the most important movies ever made in Japanese history. I think this movie is a must see for everyone. It is a very good movie, but if you are not a fan of the anime you will not like it. It is a movie for all ages, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

I was very surprised with this movie. I was a bit skeptical about it after seeing the trailer and some of the other trailers, but I was pleasantly surprised. I felt the movie was well thought out and was well put together. It is a very unique movie and not something that I would recommend to a friend. It was the best movie I have seen in a while and I would recommend it to anyone. I am very surprised at the high rating this movie has received. I will be watching it again soon.

This film is a great one, in my opinion. It is a great portrayal of the war in the Pacific, and how it affected the lives of Japanese people. It is a movie that should be seen by anyone who has ever lived in Japan. It is very well made, and has a great plot. I recommend this movie to anyone who has ever seen a war film or has had the misfortune of living in Japan during the war.

A new interpretation of the Noh-Makushita story is presented here. Although this is not a Miyazaki film, it is nevertheless a very touching film. I recommend it highly. I also think the ending is very touching. I'm not sure how this film compares with the previous Miyazaki films, but it is certainly better. I think this is the best film I've ever seen.
