lessons for everybody
10 August 2008 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Just shocking!! I have not attempted to write any comments on this web site (just lack of time maybe) but after seeing this movie, I felt that had to write about it. It is so touching and natural that I could not help crying while I was watching this film. I felt guilty on my part to share this wild and cruel world, creating so called wars , killing humans and leaving millions of orphans behind... And even the most merciless tran of the war lords can not overcome with love of music and dance. Movie gives a clear idea of how miserable lives are lived at the heart of black Afica. Everybody must see this movie to get insight about war and humanity..
