Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Dramatically inert.
Rotten: Exceedingly blurred rendering of a simply told, artful novel.
Rotten: Impeccably crafted but dramatically dull.
Fresh: A visual and emotional feast.
this film was so beautiful, the emotion behind it really got into you. especially showing how you can love someone so much and knowing that you can never have them, but you would be willing to save the one that got chosen over you just to show that you still love that person. it shows a side of true love that most often forget.
Great Story Telling!
There are several stories being told in Snow Falling On Cedars:
1. It follows the evolution of a relationship between two young lovers... one Japanese American... one White.
2. It provides a glimpse of a close knit multi-cultural community in the Pacific north-western part of the U.S.,
in which cultural traditions and racial etiquette shape the interactions between the groups living in it.
3. Despite the unspoken restrictions on interaction... connections and relationships occur between the families
and individuals who live in the respective parts of the community.
4. The time period is just before the internment of Japanese-Americans, which occurs after attack on Pearl Harbor.
5. An apparent murder may tear apart the delicate racial balance that has existed within this community.
