A Must See
This is a fantastic movie. If you can't afford full retail here, you can get this moving movie as a DVD rental. Either way, watch it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Jimmy Tsutomu Mirikitani is an artist in the truest sense of the word and Linda Hattendorf's film brings his heartfelt story to the full light of day. Bravo and well done.

DO NOT MISS: The Cats of Mirikitani
The story is poignant, enraging, tender and impressive. It will draw you in, and give you inspiration to reach out to others. It is brings clarity and perspective on a terrible and embarrassing chapter in our history. It would be a brilliant film choice to show to High School and College students.Was this review helpful?

Many will be able to relate to this film through their own experiences (or those of friends/family, etc), of oppression, racism, poverty, homelessness, broken families, and isolation as well as remaining hopeful in the face of fear and betrayal. The joy of being re-connected to family, finding friendship and a sense of belonging, and the freedom and inspiration in artistic expression that comes from such a deep, lonely place is incredibly moving. This is a great film.
