Fantastic movie with great acting, a must watch character study
1 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie really is a true gem imo, its got great acting, fantastic cinematography and the atmosphere is very well done to.

Im not 100% sure why this movie effected me so much, maybe its that I've been through a lot of rough times before (health stuff, not being on a bus during a bomb) or if it was just the way the movie was presented.

I felt very connected to the characters in the movie, they felt very real and almost like it was real life and not even acting in a movie.

The main actress is very beautiful to and she plays this role so perfectly, some of the sad looks on her face to some of the wonderful smiles she has.

I wish we got more movies like this in North America/Hollywood, this really felt like a perfectly executed movie. It might not blow everyone away, but for what the director was trying to do I think it was perfect.

Some might find this a bit boring and slow but to me its a really well done character study that I am still thinking about a lot the next day after watching it.

Do yourself a favour and pick this movie up (I got it from Film Movement), you will not be disappointed!
