Worth the watch, though what I make an objection about is that the film says "based on actual events" but then at the very end you find out it's actually a collection of events that happened at orphanages in Denmark and so the veracity of the experiences of those two brothers loses its credibility. It borders on being corny in the standard narrative of overcoming adversity.
