Amazing Film
23 June 2007 | by yebbleSee all my reviews

I saw this film 2 nights ago at the Sydney Film Festival and I am still thinking about the issues that were tackled. The film was amazing and an all-round brilliant drama. Honestly, I couldn't stop the tears rolling down my face for at least 1 hour after the film ended.

The script did not contain lengthy dialogue, but this was a positive. It was not too fast, and not too slow - it was the right speed in order to allow the audience to empathise with the characters. The acting was quite good but I think what made the film was the cinematography and the music that fit the message so well.

I definitely recommend checking this film out - it is definitely gripping and very 'in your face'...but worth it!
