One of the best movies I have seen. This is a current, relevant movie and even more touching because it s based on a true story. The actors are so talented and make you care deeply about their characters.

I took my 16 year old (American Film Indocrinated teen -exposed only to multimillion dollar crap that can be marketed into video games) and he said, "Mom, I think this is one of the best films I've seen. Why don't they make more films like this?" Money, of course. Leave it to the Europeans to make adult dramas that are much desired and needed. We are left to Focus Films and Magnolia Films and gems like this one to keep us going. Must see. Magnetic and charming.

Tired of the mega explosions and bad-guys-who-want-to-destroy-america type of movies? well this is finally something you will enjoy watching, one of those movies you won't forget, one of those movies that make you dig into yourself, your feelings, your heart, deeply emotional, from sadness to euphoria. Just go see it and you will understand.

Somebody was in charge of keeping this feel-good movie from crossing over the line into so-sweet-it-makes-your-fillings-ache. It's a dark situation laced with beams of light and proving what comedians know: we want to laugh at adversity--and the more adverse, the harder we want to laugh. Here, we get to tear up, too. Although it's a movie with no villains, it gets you in a bear hug that won't let go.
