But when she needs a new pair of goggles, things don't go as smoothly as planned and she takes everything to get hold of them. Written by Anonymous

Should have won the Golden Palme
8 August 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Personally, this was much better than Cross Country and deserved the Golden Plame much more. The synopsis for this film really gives off the wrong impression, it paints it almost like a cheesy sitcom episode when in reality it is far from it. Yes there are moments of sentimental exaggeration and the methods are defiantly in vain of the tired short film trends, but the film makers arresting passion amends most of these annoyances.

The leading girl puts on an incredible performance that makes you forget about some of the weaker ones in the film.

The film is well structured, well directed and nicely shot. It was given the Critics prize at the 2011 Festival De Cannes and rightly so.
