Humbling story
2 December 2010 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies I have ever seen. To see all those beautiful horses and Mr Karena galloping along the beach gave me the wanting of returning home. Having such a large family providing them with the necessities of life and teaching the children how to live off what God had provided in the beginning. It astounded me how the children made do with what they have, you don't need the flash cars or houses to live a fulfilling life the basic necessities are all that matters and yet to see them tormented by the ones they love, it broke me to tears but no matter what was thrown at them, they still forgave them. What a silly man his dad is, I do hope he watches this and then he'll see how much his son still loves him no matter what. I loved watching the horses and how he started to build his little tourism business in the bushes. Seeing how they became homeless and now into a home of their own was priceless. The whole movie gave a powerful message and left me with an attitude to look at myself and the way I perceive my life. What a humble family who has a Christ like attitude towards life. Thank you. very moving indeed.
