A simple story told well.
11 March 2004 | by michaelwalters56See all my reviews

I saw this film at the NYU International Film Festival in New York and couldn't stop thinking about it. It's a wonderful piece of story-telling about a young boy trying to escape his parents marital separation through his love for the piano. Although it's about something quite tragic, the film has heart and humor and is full of surprisingly entertaining moments. The kid who plays the lead role is incredible! I was so mesmerized by his performance. The emotion in his face and his eyes seems so real that you just wanna reach out and hug him. The rest of the cast are also very strong in their roles. I particularly liked the relationship between the father and the son as it was told through simple moments that were quite touching, yet never asking for attention. The director addresses a whole lot of issues that we encounter in the process of growing up and handles them brilliantly with a sense of humor. This is a very simple story told exceptionally well.
