Stunning film, I cried when it ended .

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

boring and bigoted .

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

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

Its inspirational, young, fresh, and entertaining.

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

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

My kids and wife were bored and a little disturbed.

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

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

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

The film is predictable.

I find the plot a LITTLE predictable or cliché.

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

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

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.

The acting is competent though predictable.

Worth watching/

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

LOVED ITThe film's cinematography was breathtaking.

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

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

Engaging storyline, amazing cinematography and great acting.

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'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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

A Beautiful Film With a Stunning Emily Watson Performance .

Much enjoyed it both times.

The aftermath scenes after Hiroshima were very intense.
