    Excellent movie, understated but nevertheless powerfully makes its point. Great background music by Philip Glass that provides valid emotional support.

    GREAT MOVIE ABOUT THE REALITY OF WHAT WAS ACTUALLY HAPPENJING TO THE SOLDIERS WHO ACTUALLY HAD TO FIGHT THE WAR. PERSONALLY FELT BY ANYONE WHO WAS AN ACTUAL SOLDIER - NOT AN ACTOR.
