Storyline

Listening in to a conversation between his doctor and parents, 10-year-old Oscar learns what nobody has the courage to tell him. He only has a few weeks to live. Furious, he refuses to speak to anyone except straight-talking Rose, the lady in pink he meets on the hospital stairs. As Christmas approaches, Rose uses her fantastical experiences as a professional wrestler, her imagination, wit and charm to allow Oscar to live life and love to the full, in the company of his friends Pop Corn, Einstein, Bacon and childhood sweetheart Peggy Blue.

A great sense of humanity
22 April 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

The story is very simple: a boy is dying in consequence of a cancer, in a hospital for ill children. He has only a dozen of days left to live. At the beginning of the story, he doesn't speak to anybody, including his parents and the hospital personnel. He meets a woman who delivers pizzas ordered by the hospital personnel. This encounter will change the lives of the boy and the woman. The sense of humanity of Both will grow very much thanks to this connection. She succeeds to make the boy live a life time in twelve days. She succeeds also to open her own heart to many aspects of human existence. The story is very sensitive, and the actors very convincing, specially Oscar, Laroque, and Von Sydow. The result is a film which deserves to be seen, particularly by people who use to weep when they watch touching stories.
