Everything is Illuminated

I loved this movie, and I'm not sure I could tell you why. It almost confronts some hard subjects in the Holocaust and all of that, without going all Schindler's List on you. It gets a little hard at one or two points, but overall it's got some beautiful moments to it. It doesn't really end happily, and yet you're left with this feeling that everything is as it should be. The poster for the movie has sunflowers and such all over it, and that image in the movie is associated with a character that is amazing.

I really can't describe it anymore than to say that it's a "feel-good post-Holocaust" movie. That sounds so odd, but it's true.
