4.0 out of 5 stars
Definitely a worthwhile film to buy and watch, 29 Dec 2012
Others, in their reviews, have told the story line. So I don't need to repeat it.
I give this film 4 stars rather than 5 because I think that, in real life, the father would probably have been bumped off by the heartless gangsters. That apart, I could believe in all the characters and there were some genuinely moving moments in the film. It was very well written and fantastically well acted. Whilst watching the film, I was completely drawn into the terrible circumstances that these people live in. If I had grown up from childhood in that environment, I'm sure I could never have escaped. Maybe I wouldn't even have survived. The story and characters stayed with me long after I had finished watching the film.
If you like gripping films with believable-in characters and a believable storyline I would definitely recommend this film.
