Unconditional love for a child...no matter what.
18 November 2004 | by sbh11See all my reviews

This was an absolutely brilliant movie...you get to see past the mistakes and choices that we make and into the heart of love at every step in this movie.

The acting is Oscar worthy by Jesus Nebot...and the support cast was phenomenal. There wasn't one moment that I was not hooked into this movie from fade in...until the big ending!

I laughed, and I had tears in my eyes more than once...it is what movies are supposed to be about...the journey into people's souls.

This particular story covered so well, multiple viewpoints of all people involved in the story.

You can feel the overwhelming pain and love of each character so well...and with each step...once again, love, compassion, and connection wins.

Do not miss this movie...it will stir you inside and make you feel things you may have never felt before. It will open your heart's door to the meaning of what it means to have "unconditional love" for a child...and the choices we make to protect them.

May this movie and the filmmaker be blessed with much love. :-)
