Full of Historical Inaccuracies
22 March 2016 | by shellyshelly-60279See all my reviews

While I am proud that this story chronicles my grandfather's miraculous final days in a way that will allow his memory to live on in the minds and hearts of generations to come, it is full of historical inaccuracies and should only be viewed with this in mind. The people who interviewed my family twisted their words and the story in order to make it appear more interesting to the viewers. They did the same thing in Shaken: 25 Years After the Quake. Keeping this in mind, it was an overall a fairly decent movie. But it should not be viewed in a historically intelligent light,as the people who directed it obviously did not have that in mind.
