Great!!!!
31 October 2006 | by winney_jcSee all my reviews

one of my favourite movies it made me cry at the end and through the whole movie, the songs are catchy and the plot is great with god casts. in short its about a little girl who is basically raising herself, she has to fend for herself by selling matches, she has a broad imagination and keeps herself active with them, there basically what keeps her going, he life is really sad but you can see how brave she is and how she tries to get on with her life no matter whats thrown at her. Its a great seasonal movie and for the rest of the year...10/10 for me, but you should see it for yourself, my favourite song in the movie has got to be 'me own 'ome' because it shows her feelings in a sarcastic way, or 'are you an angel' that song is the saddest though.
