Clean, sweet and lovely........period!!!
20 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I had the privilege of attending one of the private screenings of BELLA in Hollywood, Califronia...when the film ended I left the theater with a light feeling in my heart almost felt like I was on a cloud thinking "What a beautiful, clean message of acceptance and unconditional love"....BELLA "is" a labor of love and I'm proud to be a Latina just like the production company METANOIA FILMS which produced this amazing film....I am certain audiences worldwide will enjoy this film as much as I did, since it contains no violence, sex or profanity...what a breath of fresh air it is to watch a film like BELLA...I will watch it again and again, only next time I will take family and friends with me....what a treat!!!!!!
