From the View of the Daughter
12 August 1999 | by M@-8See all my reviews

I just saw this movie not long ago, I think it is a wonderful movie on a side of life which is close to reality for some people it shows the parents, caring for their child, while she goes through the time of puberty and masturbation she is put down by her parents because of this and this makes her feel unwanted and sad, and she takes it as far as to think about taking her own life, I think the daughter plays a brilliant role and is very pretty too. All over it was a very interesting but very good movie. All up I would give it 7 1/2 out of 10
