After watching this movie, you'd want your own Dayo as well. Who wouldn't? Someone beside you at all times, always there to comfort, advise and help you, like a pre-pubescent guardian angel. A heartwarming story that unlike others, does not have a soppy ending in which everything becomes hunky-dory (it does, but doesn't give you that feeling) without too much effort. A definite must for the whole family snuggled by the fire.
