    Moving

    This movie was EXCELLENT truely one-of-a-kind (as all love stories tend to be) it really brings to mind the quote that 'the difference between love and obsession is drawin only by circumstance' if she loved him back - it would have been true; everlasting love; but sadly... it was not meant to be

    A Truly Great Movie

    Snow Falling On Cedars is more than a movie, it is also a deeply emotional and psychological experience. From the forest and snow images, the sound track, and the blending of time, the movie will keep you captive until past the ending. It has political importance for telling a part of the tragedy of Japanese Americans caused by racial fears during World War II. It is an accurate court room drama, a wonderful mystery story, and a truly compassionate love story. Do not miss the movie. It is a classic of cinema art.

    Great period film on prejudice and love between a Japanese girl and white boy

    This was an excellent period film which show prejudice of Japanese-American people during World War II. Even though Japanese-Americans fought in the war for the US, they were still sent to concentration camp and were treated unfairly in the US. This movie has a story about a forbidden love affair between the Japanese girl and white boy and a murder trial of a Japanese-American man who was accused of murder of a white man who happened to be killed accidentally but the town already has in their minds that the Japanese-American man had killed the man in cold-blood in order to get his land back from the man who has died. The movie showed people's prejudice in that period which exists even in today's society.
