Powerful story of man's inhumanity to others and the sacrifice of the good. Exceptionally well filmed.

Very good movie with a touching and vibrant story. A Christian Bale back to the source in a movie which remind me his first movie "Empire of the Sun". A must see!

Ottimo film molto emotivo, Zhāng Yìmóu una certezza come regista. Christian Bale si conferma un grande attore... e per chi non conosce la storia.. i giapponesi non sono dei santi al contrario!!
