The message of this movie is pretty obvious so I won't repeat it. Most of the people who didn't like this movie felt it was too sentimental. And had the story not been a true one I would tend to agree. However, as it is a true story, I found it to be truly beautiful. The music adds a lot to the emotion of this movie. And, all the actors do a fine job. There aren't too many movies about World War I. So, it is nice to see one that is well made.
