I've just watched the DVD of this film, and I was very impressed with the footage, the historical accuracy, and the voice-over. In fact, I think it is the best documentary I have ever seen. I feel like there are some big issues in our world right now. When I first read about these issues, it was the Iraq war, and it was a pretty big topic. The film really focused on the people, the problems, the fears, the strengths and weaknesses of the various people that they were able to speak with. It was very engaging. One of the things that struck me was the fact that they didn't go into any of these historical or religious discussions. They just talked about it and talked about it. I think that was good. I also enjoyed the fact that they didn't talk about these issues in a way that they would have covered in the documentary form. I really liked that they didn't talk about it as much in a historical or religious context, but more of the social and political context. That was good. That was what I thought the film was about. I thought that it was an amazing, entertaining, well-made, documentary film. I loved it.

A well-written documentary about the Chinese people. If you're a Westerner, you can't really take this documentary too seriously. If you are a Chinese person, then you can get lost in this strange and strange world that is the United States of America. The story is about the children of immigrants and the world that they have to live in. People who are the children of immigrants, come from all over the world and have to face the challenges of life and all the problems that come with it. This documentary is really a must see for people who have any relation with Chinese people or are just interested in this topic.

I'm glad to see that there are still people in the world who are willing to expose the evil in this world. We have to make sure that there is no more child killing in the world. If you are going to watch this film, make sure that you do so with a good conscience. There are some things that I think that we as human beings should be ashamed of. There are things that we have to fight for. I believe that this film will make people realize that they can make a difference. We as a society have to make a change in our society. This film is a great example of how we can do that. We can make a difference in the world.

I never liked Asian films. They always seemed to be a bit too hard, too big, too intricate, too impersonal, too fast paced, too dumb, too silly, too nostalgic, too phony, too slow, too foolish. I've never had an interest in Asian film. Until now. This documentary is one of the most fascinating films I've seen in a long time. It made me feel really angry and deeply sad for the suffering of the people in Asia and the atrocities they were subjected to in the name of "Freedom." It made me feel angry for the people who were involved in those atrocities. It made me feel sad for the people who fought in those wars. It made me feel sad for the people who died. It made me feel angry for those who helped commit these atrocities. I don't think I've ever felt so angry and sad in my entire life. I'm glad I saw this movie. I really hope it inspires other people to see this documentary. I think that anyone who is not a fan of Asian films should see this movie. It's a great story, and it's important.
