Altruism?
24 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great movie, hard for me to watch as a pampered American.

Sili seems to live the impossible - she makes her money then seems to pass out that money to not only her Grandmother, but everyone nearby. There is no way to tell if these people are family or simply neighbors.

I have some health problems. When Sili is knocked over by the boys, and one of her crutches falls in the water, the camera pans to Sili's electric smile. She is smiling at the thought of her friend jumping in the water to get her crutch, not thinking about the evil boys that just tried to harm her.

It is a smile that I want to cultivate for myself. The smile was insane in its origin, it came from inside the girl, not from her circumstance. I want to be that kind of insane. I want to smile on my worst days like I don't have a care in the world.
