Good stuff...
4 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Definitely a somewhat sentimental film just because of the subject matter and what actually happens in it, but definitely not made in a way that seems too forced or unrealistic. The child performances are extraordinarily good, so much so that it's really quite unbelievable that they were able to give these because of good direction. The aesthetic is also quite nice, and in many ways this did remind me of Let the Right One in. This is the kind of film that many might take to in incredible ways, and some others just will not. I liked it enough, not very original but still a rather sensitive, careful approach to the type of story. I hope it gets a release date or something like that,
