    A definite favorite for me. This movie showed me the many facets of the home front during World War II. It moved me with sweetness, humor, tragedy, love, and hope. The film’s theme echoed through every scene. I loved how the camera passed people in crowd scenes, it paused briefly to give ear to their individual lives as they spoke.

    And it was all so real. In this movie, there isn’t that and-it-all-worked-out feel. People miss trains, romances cannot be fulfilled, triumphs are small and unglorified, loss is real, and expectations are not always fulfilled so grandly. The relationships are unique, not cliché, and very much like what you’d find in real life.

    Tears have never felt so wonderful when you are filled with inspiration and hope.
