I normally don't go out and watch Portuguese films, but this one caught my attention... And THANK GOD I'VE SEEN IT!! No, it's not a love story between and old woman and a kid, like the trailer suggests... It's a friendship story, and it's one of the most beautiful stories I've seen in my life! The music is good, suitable for the movie, and you kinda feel different stuff along the way... You can feel the pain and the struggle of an old lady dealing with loneliness and her husband's death, but still have lots and lots of love to give... Most of all, you can see her strength... And then you can watch the life of a kid, who's got no love from anyone, who gets beaten up the his father, forgot by his mother, and finds in the old lady some comfort and care... Overall, it's a beautiful movie, and really worth your time! Definitely GO and GIVE IT A TRY!
