What a beautiful movie!!!
13 June 2010 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I'm very surprised that such a beautiful movie is so much underrated...

Why I'm calling it beautiful because it shows the life from the view of a beautiful person and mother...

I bet you've never watched such a well directed movie with such magnificent acting since ''driving miss daisy'' or ''fried green tomatoes ''...

Ypu just sit and wonder how would my life be if I was Candida...

It's a very good comedy as much as a very good drama it is...

You have to watch it... Don't miss it...

definitely 10/10
