Just when you think you've seen every possible formula for the "family angst" film genre, along comes something new. Thought provoking isn't the way one would usually describe a film of this subject matter, yet that's exactly the response it draws from the viewer. Although cultural differences cause some contextual loss plot-wise, still present is that dominant thread which connects its story to the audience, regardless the subtitles. All-in-all this is a worthwhile film, very much worth the price of its ticket. It's a foreign release, obviously, but it makes the "domestic" grade here in the U.S. and most handsomely in fact. See it. You won't be disappointed.
