I usually don't like dramatic comedies, but this one worked, because if you do a dramatic comedy you definitely have to be a really good director, and the director was in this case, because life is both dramatic and funny at the same time and people can be very humorous and the same person very dramatic. Good comedy contains both elements, with the exception of the modern profane comedians—who in my estimation are not comedians at all. This film addresses the issues of Arab, Jew, ...

This film takes place in Belgium. The film can easily win an Oscar for many things including the acting of Veerle Baetens, who is every man's dream. She's intelligent, witty, talented, is a singer, and very beautiful. The Belgian band who plays American Bluegrass music is amazing, and they sing the American words just as well with these songs as Americans do, and I'm a musician and a perfectionist. Without telling you the whole story, this is one of the best films—without being a major ...

Based on the true story of Japanese artist Isamu Noguchi, who was born in America of a Japanese father and American mother who bring him to Japan and raise him and their struggles of survival in early twentieth-century Japan. He later returns to America and becomes well-known. This is an excellent film in every way, except for the casting at the end of the too-American-looking older Isamu, who looks more like Ricky Nelson. Boy, they blew it on this one! But the rest of the movie was ...
