Heartbreakingly Beautiful film

Author: Catherine Todd ( from Oxford, North Carolina, USA
19 March 2003

What happens in a family when the father is an alcoholic, and how that family and little boy survives. A picture too many of us know all too well, shown with mercy, clarity and compassion. Incredibly well-acted, written and directed by all concerned.

Amazing that the demon alcohol "practices what he preaches" all over the world, whether it is in the United States or Russia, where the film takes place. Wish I could buy this film; it was the first time I could come to some kind of terms with my own experiences of the helplessness of children when they are faced with alcoholism in their parents and the ones they love and rely on. The little boy did magnificently.
