This is one of the most beautifully filmed movies I have seen. We learn a lot about coffee plantations in Brasil and how Brasil came to have the largest population of Japanese outside of Japan (more than even the U.S.).

The actors in this movie speak the language of whatever country they represent, so it is filmed in Japanese, Portuguese, Italian and English and the SUBTITLES are critical to the plot. Anyone who watches this movie dubbed will miss the whole point of it at the end.

I cannot recommend this movie too highly. It is one of the best foreign films I've seen.
