Maria’s review published on Letterboxd:
No one films landscapes like Ang Lee.
Two men are fighting a war for a side that not only isn't theirs, but that, at its core, is fighting against them. Both are fighting for and because of someone else—a brother, a friend. So much bloodshed & so much loss for such an evil side. Fighting someone else's war, fighting against themselves, can only bring repression, and only death can free them.
