I think this is a very under-rated movie. It won't appeal to many people perhaps, but for a safe, wholesome, pure, lovely movie about the unattractiveness of selfishness, there's few better. The plot is simple but effective, the speed slow, there's no action, no violence, no comedy, no special effects, little drama even (but watching the trailer above reminded me that there's more in the movie than I remembered).
I went away from the movie more relaxed than perhaps from any other that I've ever seen.
For those who want artificial excitement to escape for a while, go elsewhere. For those who want to have their high standards and morals encouraged, go out of your way to watch this once in your life.
