Extraordinary! Hooked from beginning to end!
I walked into this movie without great expectations, but that perception was quickly changed right from the beginning. The movie moves fast from one action to another and you just get hooked into the story. It's a mix of comedy, drama, action, romance all in one movie, all told in a somewhat poetic and magic fashion. The movie is just beautiful, touching and well acted. Very up-to-date for the moment we live with immigration crises, multi cultural challenges, etc. I'm surprised this movie is falling through the cracks with so few people paying attention to it. Also, totally clean for young audiences. I will take my wife and 10 yo to watch. Go watch it! You will not regret.... Totally 10!
