Letters from Iwo Jima

the day got a bit better: i went to see Clint Eastwood's 'Letters from Iwo Jima' that has been nominated for an Oscar Award (or more, I don't know). in a few hours it will turn out whether it got rewarded or not. it's a good film it definitely deserves an Oscar. though i don't know the rest of the competitors so i'd rather say nothing... anyhow, i liked it. it's about Japanese soldiers who have to defend the Island Iwo Jima against the several times larger American forces. it's about the Japanese mentality, the cruelty of a war and about people who die for the same meaningless reason but u can see how people are different in the way they handle death.

after the projection there was a party with free cocktails, snacks, sushi, cakes and other things. they were fine but the staff kind of forced us to eat and drink as much as we could... and when we left appr. 15 people from the staff wished us goodnight. i felt like a celebrity. i was in fact walking on a red carpit...

I was wondering if it's a good movie. I think I will watch it. Thx Balint!
