Interesting!
16 September 2003 | by krazykid197See all my reviews

This is an amazing documentary (if a bit lengthy at 3 1/2 hours) that talks to the actors, director, producer, author, soldiers and others as well. It gives a real insight on the making of the film and on how the actors feel about the actual event. If you liked the film you will want to see this!
