A Wonderful Catharsis
30 May 1999 | by pootat-2See all my reviews

To say i enjoyed this movie would be an understatement. A unique blend of fantasy and brutal honesty, make this film a true delight. A child's search to learn more about his dead father leads to a journey of discovery that reveals more than he expected and in turn changes his perception of himself, his family and the world. This film makes one realize what is truly important in our lives. A rare find indeed!
