“A movie that accomplished something that not many movies can….getting me emotional. I donu0026#39;t know what broke my heart more, the plot of the movie, that it was a real story or that the cinema was literally empty for this hidden gem!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is my favourite film so far at the LFF. Sure, it has a pretty amazing cast, which I guess wasnu0026#39;t cheap, but it proves again that all you need for a great movie is a great, gripping and authentic story. Sadly, a movie like Transformers will always be more successful at the box office, but this is an industry problem. I can just recommend EVERYONE to check this movie out!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt showcases the importance of real good friends, love, compassion, death, grief, guilt, family, society and community. The fact, that this is a real story helps a lot, though I am not sure how much was added for dramatical reasons, this movie felt honest and authentic during its whole run. Yes, it is a very slow paced movie, but this is exactly what it needs to showcase the problems the characters are facing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBeautifully written and amazingly acted, this is one of the best movies I have seen this year and I fear, that it will fall off the radar of many people, so please watch it and spread the word! These stories need to be told, shown and experienced. Sure itu0026#39;s not an easy watch, but its absolutely worth it, trust me!”
