Good film
5 May 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The movie's story is pretty good and well thought out. The acting is very convincing too, and the characters of Toni and the mother have acted very well. It was also good to see that the director has not gone out of his way in over dramatising the proceedings and has dealt with the sensitive circumstances in a delicate way. Certain scenes and story lines of this film will stay with me for a period of time.

So in a nutshell, this film may be recommended to others as it is indeed pretty good; however it is not a great film as there was something missing. However I cannot put my finger to it and explain what exactly is. The movie is recommended for its sensitive story.
