A surprisingly humane and intelligent movie
12 February 1999 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I was very surprised by this film. I expected it to be a typical, simple story about the mother of a murder victim. Instead, I found it to be a humane exploration of what it is to hate, and to live life in the past. There was no black and white, no "goodies" and "baddies", rather the characters were real humans, with real strengths and weaknesses. The two principles were played in a sympathetic and sensitive manner. The film is slow paced, but that matched well the phases of this film, first, the exploration of hatred, and then the increasing understanding of mother and murderer.

Nothing about the story seemed contrived, and each of the plot elements followed logically from what had gone before.

The message of this film. Love yourself and others, live in the now, but do not forget the past.
