What are you going to do when your lead actress offers a performance that's as unlikable as the woman she's portraying? Maybe it's the script (flimsy, formulaic), or filmmaker Alejandro Gomez Monteverde's conspicuous direction, but Tammy Blanchard's Nina, a waitress with a dour disposition and an unwanted pregnancy, pretty much sucks the life out of this well-meaning melodrama. show more
The movie is a little more lightweight than the usual People's Choice Award winner at Toronto, but why not? It was the best-liked film at the 2006 festival, and I can understand that. show more

Great movie! Its uplifting message remains in the heart and mind of the viewer forever. It inspires, it doesn't degrade as so many films. There is an overall encouraged, strengthened emanating feel from this movie. We need movies that present this tone as opposed to depression, hatred, destruction, and misery.
A story that touched my inner essence from the moment it began. It captured all the human emotions that we are capable of feeling at one time or another. The dialogue was brief because the silence between the two main characters said more than dialogue could. Bravo to the wrirer and director.
This film touched me! It is such an amazing story and shows everyone how fragile life really is!
