A good film.
15 January 2010 | by LleytonMSSee all my reviews

I just watch this film a bit out of the blue. It moved me. It was very well shot and very well acted. Paulo is a great character that could have been a cold non caring person but he cared about everything more than anyone in this film

It was a deep film that touched on things I would rather not think about. The love story mixed with social and political issues made it like something I've seen but the setting made it so much different.

Aunty made this film special, her character was the one that opened up the eyes of me and the three main characters. It is a complex film that seems easy to understand, but at the same time it made my head hurt in a good way.

I feel lucky to have seen this film, I don't feel that way about many films.
