The review of this Movie prepared by C S
More than anything, it's a movie about love between two orphans who were left to fend for themselves amid the chaos of war. The only redemption for this sad tale is in their innocent love for one another; the persistence of innocence and human spirit in face of selfishness, greed, and violence.
