The cinematography is absolutely beautiful and deserving of an Oscar. The short war scenes are also a pleasant surprise. But the thing that really makes this movie is the brother's relationship with their father - created by Pitt and Quinn.

Edward Zwick's epic tale of a family struggling against the internal forces of nature that threaten to tear the family bonds apart is one of great acting, beautiful cinematography and strong writing that covers many years but doesn't drag on forever like some movies. The cast is headed by Anthony Hopkins as the Colonel, a former US soldier who dealt with the Indians in the late 1800s but now feels angry at the government for their way of treating them. He retires then secludes himself and his family to the remote areas of Montana along with his three sons. Then, years later, the youngest returns from school with his fiancĂ©e Susannah, played by the beautiful Julia Ormond. This sets the ground for heartbreak and sadness as well as beauty and love for all these charactersAs mentioned …

This movie is awesome!Seriously excellent doesn't cover it! I can't add to the plotline, because I hate giving things away but you have to see it! Brad Pitt is transformed into a wild person with 'n fierce love for his brother. He is simply irresistable! Further if you fear romantic stuff this is totally not like that. it rather deals with real love, the kind we experience every day and that gives us purpose. Love for yourself, your family, your home and your roots. The plot is flawless from beginning to end and the music imitates the feelings in such a way that you almost don't realize it's music. The acting is excellent and the actors are cast in appropriate roles. You have to watch this!!! And there is a reason why they put Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins together...... IT WORKS!
