it was ok.
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.
very touching film
a very good movie
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.
i loved it!
very interesting story line, well done!
Simply one of the most touching, inspiring film of the past years, and yet so simply filmed and act, really a must see.uch a simple movie, really a must see. A really nice window to our youth!
The simplicity and honesty of this movie is charming. The director has managed extraordinary performances from the children, endearing and, most importantly, believable. This movie adresses very serious subjects and could be disturbing to children.
Great story-touching-great cast--a must see--for teachers-
