    A masterpiece war movie. Not only shows how war changes the people that go, but the changes in their friends and their community. That affect would not have been possible without the opening sequence and the wedding. That's how you set up the characters and it's so funny how people today will sit through an hour and a half of crap and call it OK, yet three hours is a bit much for a masterpiece. I say you watch more three hour masterpieces and appreciate them for what they are and less hour and a half crap-fests, maybe the studios will actually make decent movies again. 9 years 4 months ago

    A war movie with only one small battle scene, all the rest is how war affects people's life and mind. Real DARK! Brilliant movie 9 years 1 month ago

    Two very abrupt cuts. It feels like the mid-part wasn't real. 5 years 5 months ago
