Wow, I don't know what movie thevisitor967 watched, but I highly doubt it was "Treeless Mountain". This is one of the best movies I have ever had the pleasure of watching. It is an absolutely beautiful movie and I cannot recommend it highly enough. This is a movie that should get the Academy Award, not the junk that seems to be nominated and seem to win as of late.
I was blown away with the slight facial and voice changes that these two little girls put into this movie. The innocence was so beautiful to watch and it is hard to believe that they are not sisters in real life
A movie that you will not forget and if it doesn't touch you then check your pulse as I doubt that your still breathing.
