emotional movie
25 October 2003 | by martijnjSee all my reviews

A very touching movie about a man finding his mental disabled parents. All elements of the movie fitted together in this really emotional movie. Julian Farino delivered a perfect movie. When 'Joe' gets to know his parents, it has impact on all aspects of his life. It also perfectly shows that mental disabled people can still have a happy and meaningful life!
