Brilliant & outstanding
30 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

This heart-warming & poignant story is beautifully filmed & well directed. Excellent acting and well written screenplay. This low-budget creative endeavor deserved much more press & critical acclaim. I hope it gets a re-release as previous comment suggested is made available on a DVD.

A must-see for people who appreciate good films. Also, wonderful music. A gem!
