Although I am giving this 3.5 stars, this review is intended for the British shows "I'm Alan Partridge" and "Mid Morning Matters." Despite this Alan Partridge film falling a bit short, the two shows featuring the Partridge character are great, and I give "Mid Morning Matters" 5 stars.
This review is for all 6 movies that comprise the epic The Human Condition. With Nakadai's acting and Kobayashi's directing, this is a masterpiece of cinema. Don't let the run-time of over 9 hours deter you from watching the best war epic of all time.
