Worth watching. Definitely recommend.
19 December 2010 | by stephenlim3See all my reviews

The movie has a surprising ending. The daughter and her daddy played their role very well. I was touched by the emotions that run through the movie. The daddy sacrificed his right over his 'daughter'. The daughter make a conscious choice for a new life, leaving her 'past' behind her. If I am in that position, what would I choose?. To be faithful to my spouse or ask to be let go?. I love the music scores at the end which is another highlight of the movie. This is a movie that I recommend to movie lovers especially if you are tired of all the Hollywood CGI stuff. I liked it so much that I recorded it and had to share it with my friends.
