After reading the reviews, I expected much from the movie but was very disappointed. It should have been called 'A sad county musical' due to the random focus on American Country Music for a Belgium couple who are losing their daughter. The film's attempt to jump through different time scenes does not add much to the storyline or the characters. In the review it quotes that the wife is religious, but she is not. She can be described as a free - spirit, which makes the husband's anti- religious views unrelated to the fundamental disconnect of the core ideas the couple keep in the movie. I would have liked to see more focus on the actual illness of the child and how the couple dealt with this rather than their random music performances with their country band. I think the movie dragged and could have ended in the middle. Although it would have been very short, it would have been a lot more realistic.
