Great movie!
4 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I really loved this movie. Subtitles and think German included. I won't go over the plot since that is mentioned in all the other reviews. It is a touching and real portrayal of an aging, overweight woman going through life with optimism and positivism. As a woman in my early forties and carrying too much on my bottom, I found it authentic and very relate-able. My mom is closer to this woman in age and personality and I saw her reflected in the portrayal given my the lead actress. I also live in an area close to where there is a very big Vietnamese population and it is quite a cultural experience which the movie addressed beautifully. All in all, the movie contains themes that many of us can identify with and will leave you inspired.
