Surprisingly heartfelt and satisfying.
12 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the IMDb rating for this picture (3.9!), and almost decided not to watch the film. Thankfully, it didn't stop me. This was a pleasant surprise.

The Lamp starts out pretty slow. You have the oft-used "funeral" beginning and a family grieving, fighting, struggling to re-enter life. I was getting a little weary.

However, the story took some surprising and satisfying twists. By the end, I was smiling and pleased with the movie. You won't finish it in a bad mood.

8.5 out of 10 stars.
