i liked this film quite a bit. it lets us glimpse into a world that north Americans are completely with. it deals with their real issues in a palatable way that makes you realize that, as serious as these issues are, they are all human beings. they are human characters that have the same conflicts as everyone else in the world. i thought it was a little overacted, but i feel that is probably a cultural thing. the father was quite good and his two business partners were quite funny in their attempt to court his daughter. their children are quite good as well. the brother's intensity is quite scary but not out of line with what we all see on the news every day. the cousin is just such a happy drifter that you can't help be like him. i would have like to see a little more of the country and a broader visual sense of where they were. the grandfather had a tendency to chew up the scenery. i found the nephew's searching for something a little vague in the film, but still enjoyed it
