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.

It was fantastic, I highly recommend this movie! The acting outstanding. You laughed, you felt empathy you cheered, your emotions were high and it was brillantly executed. It is one of the finest foreign movies I have ever seen. I haven't enjoyed a movie in such a long time it was just wonderful to see heart and soul and so much caring for the characters. Thank you for a most enjoyable and enteraining time at the movies....RB

sad,funny,great acting. a definite oscar contender for the best foreign film and oscar nominations for the two main characters. just loved it. i did notice that the audience was mostly middle aged and older tho' i think young adults could gain some insight into the challenges that some people face in life.

This movie was great! It was heart warming, funny, and touching, I think the critics reviews are way way off, they must have watched a different movie? A human story with no special effects or booming audio, it is dubbed but you get lost in the story so you don't notice that! A must see if you like a pure movie and story!

This film surprised me so much. I expected to see a socio-economic political commnetary on immigration in Europe, and was pleasantly surprised, instead. This story is one of a friendship as it unfolds, is challenged, breaks even, and resurrects. A true example of synergy, the whole being great than the parts. The friendship greater than any of these two men and their personal challenges. I would have liked more of a statement...you know what I think about statement films ... and I thought this film would have been prime opportunity to make one. But hey, someone else is going to have to make that film. I didn't miss not having a Meet The Press moment, and that's a testament to the story. A great film. Go see it today.
