Life, the proverbial box of chocolates, 18 April 2011
Author: Pascal Zinken (LazySod) from Maastricht, The Netherlands

One fine day a woman is walking through a park, calling out for her missing dog. She's about to give up and go home without the dog when she spots a 2 year old girl, left alone. Being a responsible person she takes the kid home to her trailer so she stays warm while she and her husband search for the kids parents.

And so starts a warm loving tale where two people that have little to share do the right thing and share anyway - just because they can and just because they know they have to. The way they take the kid into their lives and go on with their ways and try to incorporate her into that pattern is just heart warming. The film rolls on like a slow wave and keeps on going steadily for the whole length of it. The characters are played out entirely believable and they make everything fit together.

At the end of it you can only feel love for the couple and hope for the best - at whatever cost. It feels right, it is right. So, all in all, a feel good film with a good solid hint of tragedy and even a small bit of tension, very nicely played, amazingly set and completely lovable.
