Moving short story turned into brilliant film
3 September 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

I recall watching this film on TV. I didn't know anything about García M's novel, but the story is fiercely gripping. I remember it hitting me hard, and I was totally in awe at how simple the style of the film was. This thing is barely known, but I really recommend you watch it if given the chance. The ending is quite surprising, and it's got so much raw emotion you will almost feel moved to tears. I'd love to get the chance to see it again, but in the same fashion of Photographing Fairies, it seems there's no DVD version of it. So I guess you should catch in on the TV. The sequences with the father walking down Vatican City are beautiful and sad. I feel can't praise this movie enough, you should experience it.
