Excellent!

Watch this film... if you have ever taken a gap year you'll understand what this film is about!

I took a gap year in South America and saw some extreme poverty constantly and this captures what i saw and how I felt perfectly. If i have one criticism is that it seems really pious and preaching, but its a small price to pay for the message it captures. It also uses the same pacing that Danny Boyle used at the beginning of Trainspotting, but as Danny Boyle directed the Beach it could be a reference!

I would very much like to see a similar film but for somewhere like South America or even Africa as Asian poverty has been overdone so much recently (slum dog etc.)
