very beautiful movie
29 May 2008 | by (mexico) – See all my reviews

At first I was hesitant to watch this film since at the beginning the look of the two children frankly drew me away from it thinking it would be very depressing. But since there was nothing better to watch on my crappy cable system, I stayed and do not regret it one bit. I fell in love with the two characters. Their performance was unbelievable since they are very young and not professionals. I did not find the end very sad since it leaves you with a sense of hope because the little girl had such a strong spirit that you want to feel she will be alright despite the terrible social and cultural situations that prevail in those countries.
