Giovanni's Island is as powerful as it is predictable. It may be one of the few films to focus on the Kuril Islands, but its tale will prove immediately familiar to anyone acquainted with cinema's typical treatments of war-torn children.

Most recent Naruto volume returns for seventh week as best-seller
The 27th and most recent volume of Viz's Naruto manga is once again selling well enough to make it to USA Today's Top 150 Best-Selling Books list for the week of January 21 to January 27. This volume was published along with volumes 25 and 26 in the first week of December. After rising as high as #55, it fell off the previous week's list by two spots, but is now back at #135. This is the second time since it was released that the volume has dropped in the rankings one week, and then rose in the next. No other manga title was included on the week's list.
