Moon Blake:Just before Pap died, he told me that I'd be fine as long as I never depended on anybody but myself. I made Pap's grave just like he done Mama's. All I'd have to remember her face was one picture Pap kept, but I can remember her in the bed at night, keeping me warm from the other side.

A great great storyline! One of the best film based on a book!, 26 November 2013
Author: ugi-supriatna from Bandung, Indonesia

Simple but sweet. First phrase I mention about this film. For the family film, this film have lack of comedy and it's gonna be unusual for its kind lover. But in the fact, the film successfully bring us to its story, to feel the sadness, emotion, friendship and its drama. You will find the dead tragedy, a losing, to survive and to moving on. Moreover, center of view from this film is about a kid and his survival and adventure, and it really increase the power of drama. One more time I mention, this film is lack of comedy, the power is placed on the drama. This film is right to all peoples, especially for kid. It's simple. The message is easy to understand. It's fresh, nothing less, nothing. Suggestion: Watch it with your kid-heart position.
