Quite a powerful movie, with outstanding performances by the entire cast (Firth, Kidman, Skarsgård, Irvine). Words do not do this film justice. Yes, it's that good. Watch it. You'll understand. But be aware that there are very intense scenes here.

Two enemies meet in a different timeline.

“To be honest, I had actually no idea what this movie was about but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I have to admit that I actually really enjoyed the damned thing, even if it took a while to really grab me. At first, it seemed to be dealing with a really cute romance and Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth had a nice chemistry together. Unfortunately for Kidman, even though she was displayed prominently on all the promotional material, she in fact didn't have much to do afterwards since the rest of the movie was very much focusing  on Colin Firth's character dealing with PTSD. I think this movie gave another perspective than we got from 'The Bridge on the Rive Kwai' which might be a huge classic but still gave a rather watered-down view on wha” read more
