It's a beautiful story, but - you're right - hard-hitting emotionally.
It's gotten mixed reviews - some critics absolutely hate it. I think it depends on whether you can embrace the character of Oskar - or not. To me, he was believable and an extremely sympathetic character. I was prepared to love this movie, because I loved the book, and thought the movie was a faithful and good interpretation of it. Plus... Tom Hanks.
