Great movie in the spirit of Dardenne brothers movies.
21 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Just saw it at the Copenhagen PIX film festival 2010, and really felt it was a good slice of social realism in the style of Belgian filmmakers Dardenne brothers, but the style applies for other earlier directors as well.

The actors and the dialog in the movie is what really lifts this movie as it could really have ended as a failed movie without believable characters to make the story unfold. The child playing Asia/Aia also acts really well with the other characters.

The story is very simple but it doesn't need to be more complicated than it is. The movie worked well for me as it didn't fall into the usual clichés towards the ending as many other similar movies would have done.
