It is impossible not to think of war these days. Press and TV news keep our minds and hearts in constant worry. Though I usually avoid writing or discussing breaking news or politics here on my blog , today I’m going to tell you about this beautiful movie I have just seen, with all my heart to the news coming from the several open fighting fronts.
War is no game. War leaves a mark. Eric Lomax , like many other surviving soldiers, lived haunted by his war memories all his life through, as if war never actually ended in his mind and his heart. The Railway Man, based on Lomax’s autobiography, will come out in September 2014 here in Italy as “Le due vie del destino”, but it opened theatrically on New Year’s Day in the UK and , in the US, in April 2014. It is already available on DVD at amazon.co.uk and, from August 12, it will be at amazon.com too.
