A lot of Western audiences seem to have reacted rather negatively toward this very successful (in Japan) movie. Cries of overacting and too sentimental, even accusations of propaganda. Well I rather liked it, it has no more 'propaganda' than any typical retro American movie and the acting style and sentimentality is fairly typical of many Japanese films. Give it a try and leave your prejudices behind. Oh and the two boy actors are very appealing.
