My husband and I both enjoyed it so much, and we'll take our teen-aged daughter to see it again very soon.

I admired him so much, that innocence carries a lot of true faith, OH little boy, a wonderful movie holds many meanings and is also unexpected

I hope people will wake up to the subversive propaganda often presented in movies.

If there is something to dislike, then some would probably believe that it is the contrived plot marked with a lot of coincidences.

Worth watching/

LOVED ITThe film's cinematography was breathtaking.

Nevertheless, the emotional impact of the film was intense, I cared what happened to the people in the story, and important, timely issues were treated without becoming preachy.

Stunning film, I cried when it ended .

My kids and wife were bored and a little disturbed.

Little Boy will have you captivated and sitting on the edge of your seat!

When you can forget your surroundings and just get immersed in a movie for a couple of hours, it is a great thing.

It amounts to simply one more stunning performance of power and beauty.

It takes you on an exciting emotional roller coaster with a beautiful message at the end that will take your breath away.

This movie was more enjoyable than I thought it was going to be.

Between tears of joy and tears of sorrow absorbing the emotions of the story with the characters themselves...

Fantasies are predictable in that the ending is always the same.

I find the plot a LITTLE predictable or cliché.

Engaging storyline, amazing cinematography and great acting.

Kudos to the director/writer for creating a strong story, hiring excellent actors, cinematic appeal in terms of locations, and ultimately delivering a movie that was stirring, thought-provoking and entertaining.

Anti-American Propaganda .

I liked his character, the Japanese man living In a small town during World War 2 was worth watching.

This was an amazing, riveting, flawlessly performed film wrapped around one of the most beautiful messages I have ever had the pleasure of being entertained into hearing and believing.

A Beautiful Film With a Stunning Emily Watson Performance .

boring and bigoted .

There are some original points in the movie though that can turn it to become entertaining and interesting.

The acting is competent though predictable.

And while the main thrust of the plot may seem a little cliche, its message is endearing and definitely worth the watch.

Montaverde also composes some stunning shots of his lead actor, who is a strikingly beautiful child.

It's hard to imagine a film that deals with such serious topics and "hard times" as being fun, but overall the film is very enjoyable for the entire family.

This movie is entertaining, far better than many garbage movies in last few months.

I watched this hoping it would be a warm, nostalgic depiction of 1940s America, only to find it was subtle Anti-American Propaganda, even Anti-Christian.

A film where when you are watching it you completely forget what is going on outside and you are totally immersed into the story.

The film is predictable.

Its inspirational, young, fresh, and entertaining.

There was hatred of the Japanese almost everywhere, and well, predictable enough, there was a Japanese living in their village who have sided with the Americans.

"The Fascinating thing was, the blend between the real occurrence with the fictitious attachment.

The movie had some lightly dark moments about a kid dealing with his father fighting overseas that is very relatable, but I really feel the movie suffers cause I found the little boy uninteresting, especially compared to the more seasoned actors around him.

Much enjoyed it both times.

The aftermath scenes after Hiroshima were very intense.

The illustration was compelling in a sense that it was used in context with the innocence of the boy.

I was not expecting much more than a feel good movie, but was moved much more deeply throughout the entire film by the depth of the story line, the excellent acting and the engaging plot lines.

Think I am better for having seen this movie, and it was enjoyable to see too.

It is beautifully shot, all of the actors are top notch, the story is really good, very believable, unpredictable, nothing like 99% of movies out there.

It is a professional, entertaining, and full of values.
