User Review



i saw this movie in nyc for the film festival. this is one beautiful movie. i wish i could describe the beautiful, daring way the filmmakers captured the story and the scenery. it is very hard to watch movies that have good acting but this film certainly does. i couldn't believe it when the director said these actors had never done this before. i was completely surprised. funny that she also said the leading girl had not told her parents yet! very good thing it was such a wonderful job of acting or she might have been busted.

i also loved the humor, especially from the mother. I thought it was great how the sisters and friends are so ridiculous and yet sad and delightful. great job very good! thank you for being a voice that has some unique style!i hope the film will be able to play in America? are there plans for that? anymore film festivals? i also hope there is a way that i can purchase this film.
