Here are religious leaders who evidently care about their people. Rather than continue to stay out of politics, Buddhist monks and nuns suffer torture and even death to protest again the oppressive government. It's inspiring for even a Christian like myself. The film is all-around excellent. It's also incredibly emotionally stirring, so be prepared for a tear jerker. For an American unfamiliar with much of what goes on in Communist Myanmar, it was an eye-opener. One small but significant complaint: At times, the dramatizations take precedence, serving only to create extra suspense where none is really needed. Some of this reeltime could've been used instead to provide viewers with valuable background information about Burmese political history.
