A good one
21 October 2015 | by selena-71096See all my reviews

It is hard to review a movie like this one. Not much action, hardly few dialogues, or any dialogues for that matter. But you are glued to the screen. You care about the characters. You find the leading actress so young and beautiful. You don't know what to expect. Slowly paced development to its culmination moment. And the ending just breaks your heart. Everyone is a victim in this movie. Unfairness of life so to speak. The acting is very, including children. Well done. I love to see new faces in movies. All of the leading actors are unknown to me. I stopped watching movies with overexposed and overrated Hollywood actors and actresses . You can't connect with a character when actors are overexposed by media. And they are usually mediocre actors at best.
