A bit of mush
16 December 2002 | by (dubai, UAE) – See all my reviews

A sad tale about the harshness of reality and what a desperate person would do.

I have to say that this movie has some good points and good acting, but relies too much on it's extra "tear" jerking melodrama. It could have been a much better short film.

I didn't enjoy it at all, or even feel anything toward the characters because it was too forced on us as a viewer, and at times the shift of character too sudden and thus unbelievable.

The kindness, the loyalty and patriotism was all too dramatized, taking it completely out of bound. So by pushing and spoon feeding us these feelings the whole taste of the film was corrupted leaving us with no room for our own judgement of character. Where we should have been on the main character's side we end up thinking he is stupid. Then again maybe that is what the director wanted us to think of his main hero.
