This film deserves more than just 5...!
19 February 2012 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this film yesterday but rated it here only this morning.

I am very surprised to find out about its rating average of just a little bit above 5.

I realize the topic itself is not new, but it is a well done movie. It contains beautiful images. It is well played my most comedians.

The little girl in the story adds an interesting angle to this kind of story. A nice touch is also the fact that you can too "visualize" beliefs which are normally intangibles.

I will not reveal the end of course. But I must say that I liked it a lot. It is kind of closing the loop on the first part of the movie.

I recommend it :)
