Powerful, emotional, and thought provoking!
16 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It draws you in with its minimalist dialogue. A tangibly believable story. I found myself contemplating(still doing it actually) the main characters dilemma as if it were happening to me. It would be tempting for Hollywood to romanticize this story but thankfully the creators of this film did not. I felt for him and his daughter in a profound manner, with my heart and emotions racing throughout, but particularly at the end. Like other great films, this one lets the story tell the tale, rather than excessive dialogue. The cinematography, locations, and soundtrack work perfectly. I want more films like this. Stories about real life are far more captivating than Hollywood garbage. Kudos to the creators and actors!
