Beautifully shot, exceptional cinematography and acting
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautifully shot, exceptional cinematography and acting. The kid is the best child actor I've seen in a really long time. Hope to see a lot more of him. The cake eating scene was a most vivid description of all temptation and sin. For me it was the most painful sequence. This is a definite must see movie. Tragic case of child abuse, loss of joy and hope. Haunting, dramatic, a great piece of film. The director effectively captured one of the worst tragedies of human kind. I was left speechless for at least 5 minutes after the film. BRAVO! Simply put - AMAZING! haven't seen so much emotion in film. Fully intense, happy scenes followed by tragic sorrow. Definitely recommended with a strong message. A great quality film. Intence, moody, beautifully shot. Definitely a "10"! Do not miss it!
