  8. Jeeez, it's been years since I saw this film; I'd forgotten how emotional it was.

  10. Now that's one film I have seen - years ago now, and wouldn't pass up the chance to see it again. A wonderful story in amongst all the dross of the time. Wonder if Amazon do the book on Kindle?

  12. One of the most powerful films I've ever seen. It stuck in my mind for ages afterwards.

  13. What's wrong with me? I've never cried at ANY film. A dozen or so, maybe, out of 50 years of cinema-going have given me a moist eye, but as to actually weeping - never!

  14. I've been shown one very harrowing scene from this film and that was enough for me. I don't get 'weepies'. I avoid them. I think I was stung for ever by Sophie's Choice.

  15. The appeal of this film has always been a mystery to me.

  16. I like this movie a lot, though opinion seems generally divided. I remember a critic back in the '80s calling it a "racist cartoon." Not everyone is into the Spielbergian style.

  22. We could've sobbed together. I bloody love that film! D'you remember 'Roots'?

  23. Read the book if you get the chance. The books are always (usually) better than the movie.
