Laugh, cry, think, feel- This film is a must-see!
16 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I watched it twice in one night. I am not so much one to comment on these things but this film deserves many nods. I will be very surprised if it doesn't win multiple awards. The acting is phenomenal and adds to the film's story by allowing it to be believable despite the setting of a world of enchantment. This film is not pretentious or self- effacing. It does not look down on the viewer; making one feel 'dumb' or confused, as many of these Sundance film festival type films succeed in doing. Rather, it sets a straightforward storyline that is easy to follow yet complicated in its intricacies. Each of the characters faces a plethora of obstacles; making it easy for the viewer to relate to them. Despite the fact that the exact circumstances which occur in the film may not apply directly to the viewer's life, I think most people can find at least some part of the film to relate to personally and internalize; I know I did. This movie had a profound impact on me emotionally, which is more than I can say for most of today's movies- It is not soppy (I cannot stand soppy) nor is it too raw and gritty. I would recommend this film to anybody who can appreciate an amazing piece of art.
