Down-to-earth movie with sympathetic characters
27 May 2003 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. The script is fresh and unpredictable and the acting is outstanding.It is a down-to-earth movie with characters one cares about. It brought tears into my eyes a few times but left me with a great feeling afterwards.
