16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be sure, I agree with those who have praised this excellent film..

For me (and my wife) 'twas THE highlight of the recently completed Miami International Film Festival (we viewed 10 films during 10 days).

The depth of feeling. the wonderment, the genuineness of the children, was/is amazing for me..

The photography, color changes, etc, which soooooo capture the spirit of the moments, was wonderful.

My compliments to the director and his two talented young actors for their top level presentation..

GO SEE IT!; whenever/wherever you can...I know that I/we will (again)
