Winner of the jury award for best feature film at the Moorpark Film Festival. This is the story of one family's drama told in four interlaced segments from the perspective of four different characters. With each segment, the depth and intrigue of the story unfolds leading to an unexpected, but perfectly fitting conclusion. This is the very best of indie filmmaking.

I don't know if this film will ever get a proper official release with English subtitles (or dubbed)... I saw it on YouTube.My daughter and I are great fans of the series of classic manga books by Tezuka, so I was looking forward to this film. I am greatly disappointed.Gone is the wonderful humour of the manga. There is no trace either of the wonderful distinctive style of Tezuka's drawings... this looks just like a thousand other bland anime movies. This is a movie which takes itself far too seriously. The Hollywood-style music is all sentimental swells and saccharine excess.If you enjoyed the deep aspects of the mangas' introduction to the life of the Buddha and to Buddhist teaching... if you enjoyed the original quirky fun and great simple storytelling of the books - then avoid this film like the plague!!Luckily the books are still available in English translation and are a great read for child and adult alike. Go for it!
If you're a horror movie aficionado, you've likely heard of the box office and critical hit Train to Busan. The Gong Woo-led movie follows a group of travelers fighting for their lives aboard a zombie-infested high-speed train hurtling to one of the last safe places in the country. The film's powerful class commentary shows the benefit of taking collective action over prioritizing individual survival. Critics pointed out how the movie may be a response to the Sewol ferry disaster of 2014 that left 300 dead, including around 250 teenagers.
Your day begins with a shuttle to Lake Nahuel Huapi. From there, you'll set sail on a ferry and view Bariloche's surrounding area from a different perspective as you float towards the Quetrihué Peninsula. Upon docking we'll walk a wooded path through Arrayanes National Park and some of the most pristine myrtle in South America. In the 1970's, this 300-year-old myrtle stand was awarded special protection under the Argentine government. Local legend has it that Walt Disney walked through this forest in the late 1930's and it inspired his choice for Bambi's cinnamon color as well as the film's setting. Our hike will take between 3 and 4 hours.
Our tour ends after breakfast this morning. We'll offer a shuttle, or you can take a taxi to the airport in Puerto Montt which is less than a half-hour away for those who are flying home. If you need to return to Bariloche, we recommend transferring across Todos los Santos Lake. This trip has daily departures and the bus leaves just one hundred meters from our hotel! It is a beautiful and relaxing boat and bus trip and you'll arrive in Bariloche in time for a late dinner. Whatever your plans, buen viaje.***Extend this bicycle tour by 3 days.

In We Were Soldiers, director-writer Randall Wallace takes a stark look at the human side of the war in Vietnam. Told through the eyes of Lt. Colonel Hal Moore (Mel Gibson), the film's story focuses on the first major battle of the war—the ambush in the Ia Drang Valley (where 400 U.S. soldiers were surrounded by 2,000 enemy troops). Re-teaming with Wallace to provide emotional underscore for this film is composer Nick Glennie-Smith.Glennie-Smith's score for the most part succeeds as the emotional backbone to the film. There is very little "action music" to speak of, but plenty of dramatic suspense. The main heroic theme (an original song called "The Mansions of the Lord") is used throughout the score underpinning the more poignant moments. There are other themes as well, the primary dramatic one evoking memories of Hans Zimmer's scores to The Thin Red Line and Pearl Harbor. That is, they're certainly in the same corner of the room. But at no point did I get bored while listening to this album. "Look Around You" is a lengthy cue that builds up over time, and succeeds in provoking an emotional response. There are also some atmospheric cues that use (what sounds like) Tibetan throat singers ("NVA Base Camp") and it's truly creepy stuff—it will mostcertainly set you on edge.I can't stand track titles that give things away, but "Jack'sDeath" is a wonderful cue that pretty much captures in a short length of time, the somber tone of the entire score. War is hell, and there's nothing pretty or happy about it. "Final Battle" has a bit of a driving rhythm with some almost Middle-Eastern sounding motifs, and while it sounds great, it's just a bit too similar to bits of Black Hawk Down for my liking. Nonetheless, if you get into the music, you really won't care what it sounds like. Also showing up in a few tracks is a rather creepy rendition of "Sgt. MacKenzie" performed by Joseph Kilna MacKenzie. It's hard to describe—you have to hear it to understand. But it's both disturbing and wonderful at the same time."End Credits" contains a full choral version of "TheMansions of the Lord," and I swear that if I didn't read the liner notes carefully, I would have sworn that this was some traditional military hymn—it's just that good. This album runs just under an hour in length. It might not sound like the most original score of the year, but Glennie-Smith has done a stand-out job in providing an emotionally satisfying and moving score.more reviews by Dan GoldwasserRate this AlbumClick starsto rate.Missing Information?If any information appears to be missing from this page, contact us and let us know!
