Sunday movie
18 October 2006 | by phoebe_greenSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie at the Transilvania International Film Festival, in June 2006. It's such a lovely movie. it lifts up every soul. I think it's an excellent Sunday movie. it brings sunshine in your mind. it sends you to another levels of heart openings.

You cant say which of the 7 stories impresses you the most. It shows reality among us. Look on your right side, look on your left side, wherever you are. You'll see children everywhere.

I recommend you this movie. Just to make you smile and send you back to your childhood. All the directors were doing an excellent work. All stories, even if different, separated, get together at the end, in your mind.
