Saw this much talked about movie. Well to begin with it is definitely over hyped. The movie has bagged several best picture awards and nominations (recently BAFTA), but it not worth the hoopla it created. However, it is a good movie no doubt about that. The little girl is perfect to play the poised princess. The director has very well intertwined magical interludes with a stark war backdrop. The performers have done justice to their roles. The cinematography is also superb and the movie deservedly got an oscar nomination for it. Watch it minus the hype that you've heard and perhaps you'll enjoy it!
