Powerful film that leaves viewers with great emotional impact
8 December 2017 | by reimondo-agSee all my reviews

This is a great film, showcasing how strong a woman and a mother can be. This is a story of an extremely mentally strong woman who has touched the lives of people around her some close, some not so.

I have managed to watch this film as part of the film festival in Sydney and this was the movie that I was most emotionally felt and touched. This film made me remember my mother who was as equally strong mentally and supported me and my siblings alone. was hard to hold back my tears. Not just me, the other audience must have felt too as I heard a few people crying.

Not only she, herself is strong, but she also showed the others in need how to get stronger and supported the people around her. The people in turn supported her when she was in need of their help. And they are so willing to do anything for her.

This is a film about family struggles, undying toughness when faced with adverse reality, the importance of the care, love and support of loved ones. Very aptly titled film - her love is so strong and heated that it can even boil water.
