Poor acting, terrible sound, outstanding movie
17 January 2007 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Here is a perfect example of how brilliant film-making can be hiding behind an underfunded production. The story is amazingly compelling, the camera work very effective, the editing quite powerful and the message is urgent.

But you have to patiently bear with the very poor acting and sound that makes the dialog nearly inaudible at times. If I were wealthy, I would commission this exact same tale to be remade in a dozen different countries, using local themes to make it relevant.

Of the performers, only the man who plays the well-off uncle seems competent. Plus, the nun who cares for AIDS orphans seems to me to be dubbed in entirely.

There were situations that could have been clichéd, but the director portrayed the interior conflicts the characters were facing.

Find it if you can. I saw it on a video distributed by California Newsreel.
