Storyline

Katie, a single mother living in France with her daughter Lisa, struggles to make ends meet while working at a chemical factory. There, she meets Paco, a co-worker from Spain. Soon, they move in together, and Katie becomes pregnant. Katie gives birth to a baby boy, named Ricky, and she and Paco raise him together in their tiny apartment, along with Lisa. However, it soon becomes apparent that Ricky is no ordinary baby; he develops a pair of functioning wings and becomes able to fly. Soon he is flitting about in their tiny apartment, and together Katie and Paco struggle to raise and handle the ever-growing Ricky. Written by Alyssa W

The message!
25 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Must to admit that I studied film making and worked on the field as a film director, and wrote several screenplays. So, possible I see something in this movie that "normal" would not see. Please keep it in mind while reading my review.

pros:* Great message of the movie. The message: "People are generally good. They only need a little of inspiration, care and compassion, and for coming to their loving nature." Love this message very difficult to come across with a message like this now days.

* Very good acting cast. And faces and nature of actors were matched to the message above. * In some places were good cinematographic work

* Brave mix of the fantasy and realistic methods * Good "hidden" references to Mary (mother Mary)

cons: * wings growth was rushed * "media crowd" to generic Meaning that some of the important elements of the movie were underdeveloped.

* most of the cinematographic decisions were generic and predictable (shots, light and such)

But I would suggest to watch this movie to be inspired a little.
