The Eternal Zero (Foreign Japanese War Drama 2013)

So this was one of those slow, quality Japanese drama films. It follows around a brother and sister as they research into their grandpa who was a Kamikaze pilot during WWII. Some people said he was a coward while others said he was a great pilot, so the plot thickens.

The story went at a good pace, flipping back and forth between present and past to give the whole scoop. I thought it was good flick that highlighted many ethical and nationalistic topics that existed back then and sorta in present time. Like many foreign films, it had a few scenes that were a wee bit over the top or unnecessary, but overall it was a good one if you're looking for a good foreign drama.
Rating - A
