ALIVE DAY MEMORIES, by James Gandolfini

Last night, I sat down in front of the computer and reminded The Sopranos and James Gandolfini, and for don't-know-reason, I remebered the documentary film he made a year ago, and I began to surf on YouTube trying to watch any part of it. Gotcha: there it was. Raw, sincere, awesome, sad, hopeful, sometimes even funny.
Alive Day Memories, produced and directed by James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano) is a docummentary film shot alongside ten interviews with men and women who were injured in Iraq and came back home with mental, physical and soul wounds.
I won't tell anybody whether Iraq's war was (and is) fair, useful or not: it's more important to watch what they thank (and still think) those people that went there, and came back not in one piece, but alive, trying to rebuild their lives, and the most important stuff, celebrating their alive day with us.
I fully recommend you to watch it, and to make it easier to watch, here they are the six parts available on YouTube:

First of all, congrats for this post. You know I'm a big fan of The Sopranos and of Gandolfini's acting art. Definitely, Tony Soprano is one of the best characters in TV's and cinema history.
This documentary shows the compromise of a talented man. Someone who didn't forgot his people and the place where he came from.
