Like his mother, Ciel is a born caregiver, whose love of music, magic and new age mysticism is in large part a way to provide his mother love and protection, especially against her illness.

A Canadian gem.
4 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY is an emotionally-moving film with something that everyone can relate to. I cried when I saw it, feeling a real connection with the people I got to know on the screen.

The characters have depth, and I quickly grew to care about them and about what they experienced.

I thought the acting was really strong, the film's look was beautiful and often symbolic, and the editing was subtly artistic in the way it enhanced the story.

The team behind this piece is a force to be reckoned with - I can hardly wait to experience their next film!
