you'll never know what life will seve you
26 February 2018 | by mmunierSee all my reviews

I just finished to watched this film. I found interesting that it's based on real event. And I found that this is very realistic film. I'm surprised, not too surprised there is only one review before mine. But if this film is called Sorrow and Joy, there isn't much joy. Again this would depend on the viewer attitude as i believe we all perceive things in our own way, I'm not one to know much about directors and other factors involved with films. I watch I feel and think about it and want to share this. I have been involved with mental health and do believe the film remain true to the situation . Perhaps there was areas one could see inappropriate responses, reaction or behaviour to what one would expect it to be. I think life in general does not always follow ordinary guideline and if you add mental dysfunction you can expect the unexpected from all concerned. I think if you can deal with an honest but not so pleasant story you will find Sorrow and Joy rewarding
