A beautiful story that needs to be told
22 November 2009 | by (Denver) – See all my reviews

This film is stuck in my mind days after seeing it. The film was well-done and well-acted but viewing it was not a pleasant experience. It shares the story of Tedo, a 12 year-old Georgian refugee struggling with poverty, prejudice, and separation from his father, years after the war with Russia. In the US, we heard the headlines of Russia's invasion of Georgia, and perhaps a clip or two of Angelina Jolie visiting a refugee camp, but this kind of personal story demonstrates the lasting and long-term impact of such atrocities. The main character, Tedo is so endearing and lovable, your heart aches for him throughout. I would give anything to reach through the screen and give him the safety and love all children deserve. You wait for him to find that security and love, or to experience a moment of pure childhood joy, though you know that its unlikely. This is the kind of film that reminds you that film is insignificant except for its power to expose us to perspectives and experiences we could otherwise never see. This film will forever contribute to my perspective on war and refugees. It is a contribution to our collective morality and humanity, helping those few who will see it grow past the senseless hate and waste of war and prejudice.
