A sincere dignified portrayal of one so close and dear, that moves us deeper to heal before we have to let go... Thank you - a small but big film.
15 August 2015 | by leparvoSee all my reviews

Has been touched throughout by this work that surrounds the family after the father suffered a stroke- it resonates well in many of us who can relate to the unspoken love we are tugged, or even surreptitiously trying to disentangle from, yet yearning the love despite the lack of trust in having one at all... This film is as honest as it can get.. that it is penetrating without being scathing nor exploitative.

Watch it before you grow too old to understand how our mind play on our memories by habitual perception. Be unburdened from a mundane world that is not necessarily catered to make our journey understandable. it is touching as a whole, not only healing for the makers but for a lot of older parents A feature documentary about embracing our past, confronting the unknown scars of our parents. A sincere dignified portrayal of one so close and dear, that moves us deeper to heal before we have to let go... Thank you - a small but big film.
