| I really loved this movie
I found this movie really interesting and captivating because it was about people lost in a foreign country which culture and way of life was so different from theirs that they would almost never get accustomed to live comfortably in. So they are faced with probably lifetime of drifting like a human rat on the streets of one of Earth's capital or going back to indescribably senseless and pointless horror of war. So are they brave? Are they cowards? Are they insane or normal? Are they ready to become insane to live in a normal world? Captivating look of bare human needs between nations when all masks are downed and human is open like a garden who's main need is to cultivate the plants of emotions.
