A Surprisingly Enjoyable Film
12 January 2009 | by pam17890See all my reviews

I saw this at a local film festival (Discovery Film Festival at the DCA in Dundee, Scotland) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The festival showed many foreign films, and this had to be one of the most enjoyable (my other favourite being Nocturna, a Spanish made animation) -and I didn't expect it to be very good to be honest. I thought the acting was very good, and I don't know much about the countries where they were, but I enjoyed the story line, and felt for the brothers-who were very convincing, especially the main boy. The hot dog seller was also a funny character. Personally, I just really enjoyed the film and would love to see it again. It's an easy watching film, with plenty of storyline and interesting characters (not annoying kids at all). Some people clearly expected different things from this film, like one previous reviewer. They obviously can't enjoy a light hearted film without finding faults.
