incredible movie. very poignant yet subtle.
quite a touching film about a new teacher and the young students who come to love him. the lead actor is excellent, and the children give moving performances too. there's a dark undertone, which isn't fully developed though.
stunning film - c'est magnifique. but take your kleenex with you.
a beautiful and moving film that reveals the healing power of shared experience. a reminder of a gentler, wiser way of being. don't let the subtitles deter you, as there is no superfluous conversation so it's easy to follow and not miss the visuals.
although missing special effects including ninjas and such, it's more than interesting and ample storyline with human touches make it an amazing film.
