Great film!
9 February 2003 | by (Aalbaek, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie on Danish national television (prime time) for the second time. The story of the Stolpas is really worth watching. I still can´t understand that they really went through all that... but I will not tell any details if some of you haven´t seen the film yet. The actors were just great, especially Kelli Williams. Check out the movie next time it´s showing on your television or rent or bye it to day.
