An oldie, but a goodie. I knew that I would cry when I watched this movie, and I did. There’s no tragedy that happens or any misfortune. It’s just so painfully realistic that it makes you think about your own life and experiences with the family in your life who, Iike the little boy, may share similar feelings with.

The story is incredibly simple, and there really isn’t a complex plot. But what makes it so beautiful is the simplicity of the movie, and the emotions and rawness of these characters.

You don’t need superb acting for this movie... you just need authenticity. And that’s what you get from these characters.

I absolutely loved the grandmother - she was really the star of this movie. She portrayed the motions and actions so much like my own grandmother, that I had to pause the movie and cry. It made me miss my grandmother so much. This is why this movie is excellent. It doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not... the characters and experiences are a mirror of us and family.

The cinemtography is old, but even 15 years later you can still watch this movie and it will make you cry and feel absorbed into it.

I’m so glad I watched this movie, it put so many things into perspective for me. If you’re debating on whether to watch it or not, there’s no thinking - you definitely have to watch it.
