9 February 2004 | by (Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

It has been too long in coming but am pleased to see that the travails of family life can be examined in a way not using crude language, that a husband-wife relationship can be examined without sex and that there need not be violence to portray a heart-rending story of an uncle's visit to the USA. This film is not old-fashioned in the least although it contains some of the old-fashioned values that used to be espoused on film but of late have taken a back seat. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience.
