Beautifully directed film that transcends Haitian politics and captures the contradictions faced by migrants and refugees from political turmoil
7 May 2013 | by ira-679-532686See all my reviews

The film provides a beautiful character study of families in turmoil due to the refugee experience. Although it focuses on Haiti, and accurately portrays the diversity in politics that has marked and marred Haiti over the past three decades, it has universal application to all refugees and migrants forced to flee their countries and adapt to another culture without leaving their own culture or politics. The acting is superb and the directing by Patirica Benoit is even better. For someone who knows about Haiti or cares about the human experience of migrants and refugees this film is a gem. I would highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates an intricate and richly written and produced film.
