“..those sequences are a clunky means of conflating the personal and political, and are ultimately low-lighted by abjectly corny scenes of Fox and Hatsune slo-mo frolicking in a sun-dappled bamboo forest..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
Review rate : B-

“..the film keeps cutting to flashbacks of Fellers' doomed relationship with a Japanese college student and here too the romance never quite transcends the history lesson..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..call it old-fashioned filmmaking, but you learn a lot and come away feeling an impact all too rare in movies today..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
