I remember this movie
13 January 2008 | by cjmitchell60See all my reviews

I was just so pleasantly surprised and touched by the sweet sadness of this movie, even at a young age. I have rarely seen African Americans portrayed on screen as people (not stereotypes) who spoke to each other intelligently and dealt with issues in a civilized manner. This movie also made me aware of the vast difference in culture between Black Africans and Black Americans. All around wonderful film. This is the type of film the entire family can watch and enjoy. There is not a lot of car chases or explosions so you can watch and think about what the characters are going through, how they are feeling and how this is influenced by the difference in culture. I would like to see this film aired more often and I recommend it highly.
