Best film in ages, really moving!
20 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this film on a recent flight from Canada and was totally blown away by the authenticity of the story, characters and setting. What I often find with films that are very 'real' ,they contain a certain amount of intense violence or tragedy but this film walks the fine line between creating some thing believable that transports you to a new place you can believe really exists without over dramatising the experience. It was so subtle and many scenarios required little dialogue to show their very deep and touching meanings. Really loved it and if you like grounded drama that shows strength through adversity without ever being predictable or 'safe' then you'll love this. First review on IMDb but I simply had to support this little gem of foreign cinema.
