I just watched this documentary on Netflix and it is a great overview of the United Nations' DRC campaign, and I wish I knew about it before the media hype and "uncivilized" comments from some westerners. This is something that I can learn from and I hope to see more documentaries like this to help us understand what is going on in this corner of the world. The documentary is pretty linear and doesn't really explain much of the "why" and "how" of what is going on in the DRC. But the short story is it is about the struggles of the villagers trying to survive, the politics behind the aid, the need for reconciliation, the U.N. involvement, and the U.S. involvement. It is not about the humanitarian impact of the aid but rather how it is trying to change the power balance of the jungle. It doesn't have a lot of dialog and the documentary itself is pretty dry. The DRC and its people are almost forgotten when it comes to the media and the other global news and the poor go ignored. The documentary is based on interviews with the people who live in the DRC and what the people go through, and what they have to go through. They are not starving and they are not starving with the aid they receive. They are living from the money the aid gives them. They are living in a slum. The aid makes them feel happy, but it only serves as a means to survive. What is happening in the DRC is a call for a world where all the people in the world are treated equally and the world is a place where people of any background are respected, rather than being treated as second-class citizens and foreigners who have no rights or rights. It is a call for a world where everyone is treated with dignity. This is a call to do away with the current colonial, racist policies that have been in place in Africa for centuries and make a change in the U.S. and other countries that are still using them. The DRC is a place of pure poverty and with just one bullet or two rifles, the government could take control of the whole country. So why is the DRC struggling to survive? It is not because there is not enough money for the government. It is not because there is not enough food for the people. The DRC is just poor and suffering. What is causing the drought? The UN only has one answer: this is the U.N. The UN claims that the government does not know how to feed the people, and that the aid is too little. This is also a great documentary that explains to us why the DRC has been so isolated for so long. I would love to see more documentaries about the DRC and its people. It is a story that needs to be told and I hope this one will make it to the masses. There needs to be more people in the media and on television with more international and humanitarian interest in this story. This documentary should be required viewing for anyone who wants to learn about the DRC. I have rated it 9/10 because it is a great story and it is very well-made and the cinematography and directing is great. I hope this documentary makes it to the news and television and eventually gets some recognition.

This film is not for the faint hearted. Though the American government used the term "Anwar" in relation to the country's main political figure Anwar Ibrahim, this documentary gives an accurate picture of Anwar's fight for freedom. A National Citizen, he wanted to become a member of the United States Army and fight in the war on terror. Aided by the United Nations, he was able to get funds to buy a small plane to fly into Thailand, where he would be trained to fight in the war on terror. In Thailand, he was expected to fight a guerilla war against the Thai Army and the Thai government. Though his quest to fight was long, he never lost sight of his family and his dream. He was able to inspire the world to take a stand for freedom and human rights. What an inspiring story!

I never read about the persecution of the Chinese people during the Cultural Revolution. But I have to say that this documentary is not just anti-Chinese. It shows the reality of the forced migration of Chinese, including the many Chinese who risked their lives to go to Japan. It was so dramatic, that I felt my heart getting heavy, when I saw the video footage of the suffering of the Chinese people. I really hope that the Japanese government won't let the Chinese people to be victims of Japanese aggression.

This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I think it was very well done and the subject matter was excellent. I think it's very important to show the world what the Burmese are going through because we don't want to be prejudiced against them. It's also important to show the world that we want peace and to stop this conflict. This is a very well done documentary and I hope that it gets more exposure. If you haven't seen it, you should see it. It is very interesting and you'll be asking questions after you see it.

I must say I am a little bit surprised how few people are able to recognize this documentary on the cover of the DVD. So, my wife and I made a special order of the DVD and decided to watch it after it arrived and I just realized how rare it was for this movie to be on the "discography" of many other documentaries. I found it very moving, very informative, and even a little depressing. I thought that the little girl, who was interviewed, was really good. We didn't realize until after the interview that her father was a part of the organization. I must say I thought the actors who played the kids in this documentary did a great job. I liked that there was no "blame game" involved with any of them, and the parents did not blame anyone. They just did what they could to protect their children. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has been to Burma and has had some contact with the groups fighting for independence. This movie reminds me of the wonderful and positive role that Americans played in helping to defeat the Japanese during WWII.

I was actually inspired by this documentary to take action. I've just seen an interview with the film's maker, and he told me that he doesn't think that it's fair to make films for his friends who were imprisoned. How many of us do that? How many of us know what their prison sentences are like? I'm not sure that I'm ready to take any action, but I'm going to make sure that we make more films like this one. This is a really important documentary that needs to be seen, and if you are ready to take action, I can't imagine what you can do to help. If you have any information, please let me know.

What a shame to hear of a great documentary in the making that the film has been quietly removed from distribution and allowed to dry up into obscurity. Where to begin? The second is the documentary itself, a strong, dynamic, and important one. I highly recommend it, and urge anyone to watch it. It was one of the first documentaries that really got me thinking about the whole issue of Burma. I'll admit I'm not particularly political, and I'm not really a fan of that type of documentary. It's a sad state of affairs that so many films about Burma are being ignored. The best documentaries of the last few years have been those made by actors. The International Documentary Theater team in South Korea is, as always, exceptional. And as far as I'm concerned, the documentary was a very good film. That's all. I won't go into detail about the documentary, but I will say that this film got me thinking, and will continue to. The question that needs to be asked by the western world is "Why? Where are we heading?" With the time left to us in this world, there is no excuse for not seeing what is happening in Burma. In many ways, the Asian War in Burma is a microcosm of the Vietnam War and it is the atrocities committed by the government, that made it possible for the world to become the country it is today. The documentary, in my opinion, has really sparked a lot of discussion about the issue of Myanmar's civil war. I'd say that the war is still going on, and the people in Burma are fighting for something they don't know how to define. If you're an American and you're having trouble keeping up with what is happening in Burma, this documentary will help you to get a better understanding. If you're not an American, I say watch it, and see it. It's a powerful film, and a very important one.

I was deeply moved by this film. As a child, I was totally unaware of the issue of Burma and the suffering of the country. What a great film! I went to see it with my own family and in my early twenties, a lot of the things we are now confronted with were so surprising. I am glad that a movie has been made about this and other issues. I really hope that this film does not have a significant impact on the situation in Burma, but hopefully, it will change the world and help to bring the people out of their poverty. One of the things that I think we have to be aware of is that the issue of Burma is not just about one country. It is much broader. If this film does not change the world, then we must change the world. This film is a great first step in doing that.

BETTER THAN TANK. Yet another case of Hollywood attempting to throw its weight around. Only this time, the organization has a dollar-bill sponsor and the picture it wants to promote is of a rebellion in the countryside. I saw this film while on a short visit to Burma, and thought it was a very good piece of work. The subject matter was very important to me, as well as the way the film was made. I wish the film had been longer, as I would have appreciated more detail. However, I was impressed with the overall message. It's not that we need to be concerned about animals being taken for forced labor. It's that we have to fight for our animals' rights. And the film does an excellent job at conveying this message. That's why I was impressed with it. Another good point that the film makes is that it's important to show the horrors of animals being held in captivity, and the potential for how such conditions can ruin people's lives. I think that's a great message, and it's very well done. So, check it out.

I was deeply moved by this film, particularly after a long while and not just because of the experience of Myanmar. I have been on the issue of Myanmar in more depth in some of my other reviews, so it's not just the political aspects that draw me to this movie. This movie is extremely well made, and it speaks to people with different backgrounds, races, and gender identities. The acting was superb and the editing of the footage was excellent. One of the most important aspects of the movie was the cinematography. It shows the beauty and beauty of Myanmar and shows the problems of the Burmese people. This movie speaks to the people in Myanmar and gives them the opportunity to see the beauty and hope of their country. If you can get in touch with the Burmese people, you will find that they are beautiful and inspiring people. There are so many people who are suffering from the famine in Myanmar and they are just as proud of this film as the people of Myanmar are.

I saw this film when it first came out. I had never seen a documentary before, and was happy that it did not focus on western perceptions of China and the People's Republic of China. I've had several American friends, who also happened to be educated in the People's Republic, who have come out of the US and given the film a lot of publicity. I wonder if any of them would have had a problem with the film if it had focused on China and its problems. Perhaps it would have been more appealing to Americans, who are generally more interested in how well their own country is doing. I've seen documentaries about the Vietnam War that focus more on the war. So it's not a perfect film, but for what it was, I found it very interesting.

I thought that this was a very powerful and realistic film. I think that most people who watched it did not know much about the situation in Burma at that time. Many of the other comments on here seem to focus on the fact that the film was staged and I agree with those comments. But I think the film was very well done and as well as the actor's were. The story was very well told and was based on interviews with people who were involved in the effort to bring the Chinese to the country. I think that the film showed that not everything has to be 100% real and that most of the action that happened in the movie took place in the minds of the people involved. This documentary does not claim to be a documentary but a documentary about the people involved and how the movie was made. It shows how the people became involved with the movement and how they got involved in the filming. It does not show a parade in Burma. It shows how these people became involved in the struggle and the movie does not try to promote a one way solution. It shows how a small group of people took action and how they helped bring the Chinese to the country. It shows that they had problems and that they had to move in order to change the situation. And it does not show a triumph in Burma but a defeat. It shows that this is a small, isolated group of people who saw that they had no alternative to follow their beliefs. It shows that they had no political party or organization and that they had to do everything by themselves. This documentary is very well done. It is very good for people who have never heard of the struggle. It shows that the people in this struggle are not stupid and can be reasoned with. The film does not glorify the movement but rather shows the circumstances and how these people felt about it. It shows that the people that this movement grew out of actually started it and that they actually wanted to help Burma. It shows how the members of the group became involved in the movement. The film was very well done. I highly recommend it. This documentary shows how people can be influenced and influenced by an ideology that they believe in.

The film is good. There are good points and points that could have been made but they didn't. There are several points that are shown in a much more subtle manner than is probably expected. The central point is that the politics of the US government were not as clear as they are portrayed. Even if you don't agree with the US government's policies, you still have to ask yourself what you would do if you were in their shoes. There are many more points that could have been made but they were left out, including those that show the reality of the struggle, not only for the victims but for the US government as well. I would recommend the film to anyone who wants to understand a little more of the situation.

From the standpoint of a Bangladeshi living in Singapore, this documentary about the work of the US Navy Seals and the American Indians in Burma is probably the best documentary I've ever seen. It's a deep and profound look at the very high profile US special forces operatives involved in a war that, in the end, is a sham. It's also a very brave and personal look at the sacrifices these men and women made in the pursuit of a noble goal that neither of them could've dreamed of having when they were in the service. The US Navy Seals themselves talk about the full weight of their work being more than just killing. It's that they have to walk the same roads and answer the same questions over and over again because, if they don't, they could be killed. This documentary doesn't pretend to explain the precise details of how they did it or why it was that way. It simply shows how much the military men made it possible for their country to become a democratic country without ever doing a thing that wasn't good for them. There is absolutely nothing of value that this documentary can offer other than this: the ultimate sacrifice of all involved. There's no reason why the Seals and the American Indians should not be recognized as heroes, as it's been done in the US. But that's not what it's really about.
