As an British born person, it's not every day you see a German or even foreign movie, let alone write a review for one.
But after watching this sweet movie I felt compelled to tell the world to watch it. This movie is the story of a half Sri Lankan boy who dreams of working for a five star hotel. His life ambitions are sadly broken when his retina detaches and he becomes partially blind. He can't go to university. After further being rejected for apprenticeships due to his disability, he then sets about getting a job by spoofing that he fully sighted. As with the stories about blind people, the scenario makes for comical effects. But it is matched in equal parts by the heroism of the protagonist, the sadness and poignancy of the situation, the complexity and joy of the human relations in the background. A sweet feel good movie, made so much better by knowing that it's true.
We were lucky enough to find this movie on Amazon Prime, I hope with widescale distribution others will enjoy this as much as our family did.
