And finally there is a movie which does not need to explain in all details. Read the summary and see this movie ... you still will have your own explanations and opinions about this movie. Not as we know it from the 'American' or 'Hollywood' productions where it is so obvious what the intention of the story is. Not as we know it from the 'American' or 'Hollywood' productions with big fire-explosion climaxes. A good description for this story is maybe 'Sober'. But .. I have to admit, the life of a family-on-the-run-for-the-bad-guys is maybe displayed as a bit romantic, and maybe a bit unrealistic. Still I would recommend this movie, for a late Saturday night.
