First of all I strongly recommend this movie because it's beautiful and sad at the same time. I can't believe no one made a nice review of it.
The history seems a little messed up in the beginning but it becomes very clear as it explains the pretty well done critical base behind it. It's one of those situations where you don't know what you would do.

The composition of the movie read more is also very good,it goes neither too fast nor too slow. I had no problems with that. There were just a few things that wasnt explained about the characters but these things didn't make the movie meaningless so it was kind of ignored.

And we can't forget the acting. Those little girls were absolutely amazing and the mentally handicapped father made no clue of his great acting.

Good movie, I really don't understand why people don't like it.

I think talk about how much we have overrated the U.S., asian and whole world dream about America all his life.

People who by necessity or greed, accepts or helps make these horrible acts without thinking... It's sad to think that such situations exist in real life.

Great actors, great story, great everything.

    for those looking for a movie with a deeper message. it's a critical look at a society that is quickly becoming entrenched in materialism and superficiality. chasing "the dream" no matter the cost, even if it means hurting others or oneself. there are characters at different sides of the spectrum that give this movie a nice balance.

      no he didnt. he cried because he found out that the guy adopting them was only looking for a new heart.

      Did he do a DNA test to find if she is a match or something? You can't just grab any heart and put it inside you.
