It does happen...
17 April 2010 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie I was 13 years old, and back then I manage to understand the message that the movie was trying to send.

Sometimes it doesn't have to be a "why" or a "how" for people get in this kinda life, you just have to grow up in the middle of it...

This movie is all about life, the feeling of emptiness you get near the end credits, and you start to think how did the world become so messed up.

Maybe nowadays kids are much more informed and have different perspective of the real world, back in 95 I dint have a clue, and Kids kinda open my eyes a bit...
