5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 8 Jun 2014
I am a big fan of this series!
I didn't know what to expect when I started watching it and ended up so enjoying it.
This brave woman - I wish there would be more of her kind. Annoying but oh so necessary. Can't wait to watch season two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad and uplifting, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a very sad and yet an uplifting film. The storyline was interesting, the characters played excellent and it showed some of the harshness, struggle and dangers the people trying to emigrate experience. It is uplifting because there are lots of people showing human compassion and willing to give help making this impossible journey possible. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this film. The main character travels to the US looking for history and roots and ends up with present day's challenges which he handles in his own way.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary man, 13 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The First Grader [DVD] (DVD)
I just love films about extraordinary people - it is so inspiring to watch what some people can achieve. And this is such a film to love.
This 84 year old man decides to learn to read and write and is so determined to do so that he can endure almost anything and in the end he even ends up in the UN in New York to tell about the power of reading.
He has endured lots of horror in his life, so him being this strong, wise, gentle old man is amazing and inspiring.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 25 Aug 2012
This review is from: Where Do We Go Now? [DVD] (DVD)
I loved the characters, the music, the story and the filming - it was really a treat for me when I watched it at the cinema with friends. It was laughter and tears, and I enjoyed how the women outsmarted the men to prevent an outbreak of violence and the solidarity between the women. I will most likely watch this film again. Highly recommended.

This is a book about love and hope and that everything is possible even if the starting point is poor. I felt good when finished reading it and really got to like the characters, their pleasant and loving nature. Highly recommended to everyone who wants a sweet story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great actors but bad storyline, 5 July 2012
Just OK to watch but nothing more. Will soon be forgotten by me as the story didn't engage me as I found the manuscript to be boring. Just easy-going, no big drama or excitement, very likable cast of characters, it is all very nice and ordinary but it is missing some kind of tension to make it interesting. So many great actors so this is really very sad. I was expecting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting, 5 Jun 2012
This is a small pearl of a film - crossing through ballet, wordless acting, strange figures, peculiar storyline, wonderful acting and very memorable. It is full of humour and aesthetics - a different film experience - in a good way. It was like a blind date for me when I went to the movies to see this film - and I was pleasantly surprised. Just sit back and let yourself enjoy - highly recommended.

About the film:
"Dom is a night watchman at a small hotel in Le Havre, France. One night the mysterious Fiona appears, shoeless and without any luggage. She tells him she is a fairy and that he can have three wishes come true. The next day two of them are fulfilled and Fiona has disappeared. But Dom really wants to find her as she has opened a new world to him, a world crowded by fantasy and love."
