Good for the family to watch together, parents, kids and teenagers.
18 December 2013 | by arnheiSee all my reviews

This film is different. It is a feel-good film for December. It is about being kind, about being afraid for your loved ones, it is about the difficult subject which heart transplant is, and it is about our reactions and feelings when we are very scared that our loved ones will die. I watched it with my children, an 8 yo and a teenager. It kept us interested and we had strong sympathy for the persons in the movie. It gave us a lot to talk about, because the questions of life, death, organ donation and illness is not something that comes up in a day to day discussion. My kids were very interested in the subject and really interested in the film. On the other hand, the acting is often pretty bad in the film, it is often very soap-opera like. But the kids weren't concerned about it, acting in children's movies is often pretty bad anyway. I just bit my tongue sometimes so I wouldn't blurt out "ouch" when the acting was too much of a cliché. So, I highly recommend the film for what it is, a good film for parents to watch with their kids and teenagers, to think with them, and talk about some thought provoking subjects. It is also a gorgeous relief from all the films that are filled with gore and profanity, finding good films to watch with kids can be so hard these days. So, don't expect Oscar winning performance, just enjoy the ride and the good sides in this film.
