Basically I found this movie because it was the only one with available seats at the time, I read the synopsis and the poster sold me. WOW!
When it started I didn't really get the tone of the movie, but 5 minutes in I really got into it. Its perfect blend of dark humor, touching stories and drama makes for an unforgettable movie. It touches every soul and really gets you thinking, your life could change in a minute. It is brilliantly shot and the score is fantastic; not to mention the performances, simply perfect.
The film has an incredible message, it's moving and inspiring. Just watch it, you'll be pleasantly surprised, like me, and you'll walk out with a different mentality.
