Review by P.Bryant (posted on 27-May-2009)

One of my favorite Capra films. Very sensual, with a story that enlightens one about the the misconception of culture differences akin to barbaric versus civilized. I love the line about war and the loss of life. Right and wrong depends on whose truth? The dream sequence is extremely sensual with biracial love unrequited. Great movie!
