A delightful film about overcoming some obstacles of youth and aging
28 August 2016 | by irene nugentSee all my reviews

I liked this film because it was entertaining,and I learned something. Many tales are told on screen with similar themes, but this one took me to a place I didn't expect. I am not the savvy movie goer that typically writes reviews on IMDb. I am a patron of the arts, and if a story sticks with me, then I have high praise for the film.

My criteria for rating the film so high is this:

Is it worth the price of admission? Is it memorable? Does the look, continuity, and score of the film add or detract from my enjoyment? Is it inspiring? Did I see something new?

This film did not disappoint on any level.It gave me a glimpse into another culture and enabled my mind to see things from an actor's point of view.
