Cast & Credits
the movie is based around the family bonds and relations: the older brother that protects her sister the best way he can through any hardships, the man who protects them as if they were his own, etc.
not only does the movie concentrate around the family but also around friendship, new encounters and as well searching for the meaning in life (in my opinion)
Very nice movie with great acting!! the little girl who plays the sister's role is just amazing..even though she is small and does not have experience in acting...she was able to bring the character to live with the help of the other casts :)
The scenery is just beautiful throughout the movie. The bicycle ride just brings to many different places that enriches the standard of the movie :)
Just to mention the movie is set in the country side meaning that the situation of the families and the life does differ from the city life. It is set in a much poorer area and one might not like the fact that all characters in the movie speak with an accent
The movie is all about friendship family and dealing with the difficult things in life.
I’m definitely going to re-watch this movie!!!!
at the end it made me cry a lot .
I CAN CERTAINLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO PEOPLE !!
