This movie deals with a very important issue, but at the same time makes the viewer tired to talk about the subject anymore.
First of all, the director certainly doesn't know his geography. Typically American to know nothing about the world outside of the States. They talk about Chisinau, which is in Moldova. Yet, the phone is answered in Spanish, and 'Amanda' then says something in Italian! Also, the birth certificate is in German, which is not spoken in Moldova.
But that is not the worst aspect of this movie. The whole thing is simplistic. Corners are cut everywhere, which makes the storyline sound like it was written by a twelve-year-old. Furthermore, the acting was horrible. 'John' was obviously just put in there to be pretty, because he can't act at all. 'Amanda' was a little better, but still not at professional level. 'Tatiana' seemed to have been taken right out of a children's movie of very poor quality. The only one who could be a tiny bit credible is 'Amanda's father'. The rest of the actors were abysmal.
The scenes that were supposed to give the viewer a certain emotion were too fake to do their work. I had no emotion with this movie except frustration with the bad script and the bad acting. And I am someone who starts bawling with the first hint of emotion in a movie.
