This is a movie from the heart. Anyone who had a good father unable to openly express his love will see much of their own relationship reflected in the father/daughter dynamic portrayed. Perhaps more common to all, the film is a warm reminder about opening our hearts to those around us. This deeply touching story was well balanced with humor. I wholeheartedly recommend this film.
Incidentaly, the soundtrack "Aurora" by A.Cohen made an outstanding contribution to the film's story telling. I notice it was not in the original soundtrack, which leads me to believe the soundtrack had been revised. Much for the better, though. Kudos!!
