Heartbreaking, touching, inspiring, awesome
31 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie starts out the same way it ends. Whatever you do, see it with subtitles. If it does come out dubbed, I wonder if something may be lost.

Jojo is a little boy, maybe 8 or 10, he's struggling with his mom not being around. he talks to her on the telephone telling her things about his life and the Jackdaw chick he's rescued from the nest. He initially tries to return the chick but the mother refuses and tries to attack him and the chick falls back out. He takes the chick home.

Throughout the movie when you suspect that the tone is going to get deep and heavy and maudlin, it lilts back to life thanks to an incredibly moving soundtrack and Jojo's spirit with the connection to the Jackdaw chick. There's so much more going on in this movie than meets the surface. It's one of those that should be watched more than once. To see such a spectacular performance from the main character is simply amazing.

No spoilers, just, if you're lucky enough to see this movie, enjoy it. It's worth the effort to find.
