Children's feelings, 10 November 2013
Author: ivalu90 from London

I won't describe the plot as it has been done already. What was moving to me it was the way that Keitan feelings were hurt by the expectations, lack of attention and coldness of his 'father'. He makes him feel not good enough and a disposable good that can be exchangeable and has no right to express its feelings. He goes as far as to request the child to avoid all contact with them.

He reconsiders his posture after-wards and what it seems to have disgraced both families comes across as an important opportunity to reconsider one's views in life and one's priorities.

Very recommendable movie.
