I really liked this documentary
5 October 2017 | by contact-11192See all my reviews

I liked the fact that Nina manages to picture very well the concerns of a woman in her 41s being realistic enough to realize that if she really wants to experience the role of a natural mother, then she has to take a decision and it has to be a fast one. I read a comment above debating on why a woman in her 40s is still single. From my point of view the comment proves judgment and criticism building on the hypothesis that is has to be the woman fault for still being single. I choose to stay away from these perspectives because I feel it's the right of every person to take her/his romantic decision, no matter the age. I scored the Documentary with a high score because I felt I was watching a grounded and realistic movie. Yes it might happen to be single in your 40s and still want to be a mother, as it can happen to feel more close to your mother than you felt towards the Dad. This doesn't mean that the relationships cannot change or evolve. And I am stating this because I am sure that how Nina decided to share her perspectives and feelings towards her father, changed something inside him, opened him up and allowed him to see life from different angles. Great Job Nina! I really liked your openness and creativity!
