Viewer Feedback:



"Very touching...touches the truth"

"Best film in the festival..."

"Great movie"


"Great story, Great movie...the sound is so much better than in current movies where music makes it difficult to hear the dialogue."

"A story well told...very good film technique"

"A real story that holds one's interest"

"Great music and story incorporated well"

"The subtle style allows you to be a silent observer in the life and events of this child as if we were there with him. It allows you to focus on being told a powerful story - and this is rare in today's films. It is as if the camera caught the events by accident."

"Sensitive and real. What you have done is create beautiful art -reflecting life - reflecting us."

"The film stays with you. I thought about it for days. Unlike most films you forget about shortly after leaving the theater."

"I loved the cinematography! What a unique and cool style...impressive!"
