I'm not a person who usually sheds tears for a movie, or weeps in general for that matter, but man I cried a river after seeing "Crossing". It really makes you wonder how can life be so tough. Unfortunately, it can and though this is an extreme example, way too many people have to go through such injustice and sorrow.
Story - the toughest you can find. Acting - brilliant. Directing - excellent. But the thing that hits you right in the forehead is the reality. It made me project myself into the poor soul of a simple man, whose life is not much more than a non stop struggle for survival, and then such a simple, tiny joy like a summer shower makes you happy and brings a smile to your face. Even in the toughest times life is about little things and it does make you appreciate all that you have.
The mark is 10, and even that's way too low for what this brilliant title made me feel. Good job.
