multiple movies about an important subject; children
27 July 2007 | by dutchfoxySee all my reviews

The World is not always a beautiful place. This movie, that exist of multiple small movies, shows a few of the world's problems... especially in relation to children.

Because the subject is important and the stories are realistic, there is already enough reason to watch it. Not every sub-movie is as strong as the other. But they all tell their own story and overall I liked it very much.

Also don't forget that some big names have been involved in creating this movie, to name some: Spike Lee, Ridley Scott and John Woo.

It has almost no action, certainly no exploding special effects. But it does have drama, laughter and shocking moments... go see it.
