The existing taboo is in the rating!
23 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I did record this movie on my home system but did not watch it for a long time. However I did last night and was quite amazed, and despite all I seem to know about myself I liked it. I too needed to watch the subtitles although French is my natural language, between the two I managed to cruise with the story. I thought it was very worth while watching and was truly entertained. I disagreed about the acting ability of the main character but understand it's to each its own. Whether we like it or not this side of the world is a reality, perhaps a sad reality but I did not feel that the movie was trying to glorify it, if anything it gave an even break to the so called weaker gender. To me it portrayed how complex human being can be. Here we have a bright person who could have been successful in almost anything but especially the field of medicine. Instead life events orientate her in a world entirely different and at the other spectrum of her early philanthropic aspirations. The ending tells us about how our choices can be like flipping a coin up in the air and on what sides it will remain once returned to the ground. 5.2 out of ten was the present rating (of which I usually abstain) I honestly think it deserves more.
