I saw this movie while going to and coming back from Japan. Actually, I saw this movie quite a few time, if anyone knows how long the ride takes. I was glad they had this movie. It was actually pretty good. I'm interested in all type of history, so this movie kinda opened my eyes. I didn't know that the Japanese called Jazz the enemy's music or that playing Jazz was looked down upon for a while. Not knowing any of the actors, I can't really say how their acting was. But the storyline was very good. They theme song was pretty good. Overall, I would say its both an educating movie, while it's entertaining. It's not a documentary, so don't get me wrong. But it teaches many people the things the Japanese had to go through after WWII just to survive whether it be becoming hookers or playing the enemy's music.
A very good movie, hopefully it will make its way into USA.
