a mothers prayer
10 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

last night on the night of February 9th 2008 i watched a mothers prayer for the first time,i have never been so moved by a film before and to know that these situations did occur,it opened my eyes and i cried out loud,i am a gay man and i truly loved this film even though i watched 12 years after it was made,it is truly an inspiring film not only on the mothers part but the sons as well and it truly moved me i felt so bad for the mother knowing her child had to have another family before she died,once again it was a truly excellent film.I never had a film on the other hand to affect me so much as this one.The courage of this mother who was a good person should inspire all mothers to do their best for their children.
