beautiful and moving
8 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this @ Berlin film festival.

It was one of the visually beautiful and moving films I saw!

It stood out for me through it's compelling subject matter and stunning landscapes.

The performances were extraordinary. They kids were so real and open in their performances. I got a glimpse into a culture I didn't know yet found something universal within it...

The audience around me were laughing and crying with me... I think we were all taken by the heart and warmth of this film.

This is the sort of film that needs to be seen. I hope it gets a release outside the festival circuit. I can't wait to see what the director (and writer) do next.

As you can see this film moved me...
