Over the Hill
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow! I have been looking for information where I can find this film. I saw this movie for the first time when I was a lot younger in the Philippines. I also saw this movie on a late night and once on an afternoon. Could it be possible that the person who also commented here and I saw this movie at the same time during the showing in the Philippines? This movie also made an impact on me specially when the son discovered the difficulties his mother faced. I cried to tears as well. I was also surprised to see male nudity well somewhat nude. As the son dragged another guy on the street his pants ripped clearly showing his bare butt. This must have been before the censors in Hollywood was created. I could be wrong about this scene since this was over three decades ago last i saw it. Its nice to know that someone else saw it other than me. Thanks to the internet. Thanks to IMDb!
