Paul Fricker’s review:
This has to be in my top ten movies of all time. I love the music and the scenery, I love the narration, Brad Pitt and fellow actors are all great in it. It has few action scenes, but many long quiet scenes that are tense and dramatic. I'd be interested to know how much of it is based on fact, but ultimately it doesn't really matter to me. The fact is its a great film.
