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.
