REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the ups and downs of survival while hanging on by their fingernails are too linear for spontaneity and the happy ending is nothing short of contrived..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..unevenly paced, its poignancy and joyfulness exercise a stealth impact..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
“..there are a couple of moments where the sentiment turns into sap and could have been trimmed..”
by Scott Nash [Three Movie Buffs]
