Pseydo, but real
Some might argue that this movie rides on the rise of the documentary movies. And while this movie is shot like one, it is very clear that it ain't a documentary. That leads to the question, how real the situations depicted in the movie are? While I can't tell you that, neither can anyone else talk about the situation, if he/she hasn't lived it.
Back to the "reality" of the movie. Although we know that actors play a written scenario, this movie feels more real to me than any reality show on TV (not that I watch them)! Having said that and not wanting to spoil to much of the story, I'll only say that I was impressed with the actors (although I don't think all were professionals).
Especially the guy who played the father. The story really grabbed me and I was amazed by little things. Things that in the western World you'd take for granted, but clearly they're not. At least not for everybody in this world ...
It's not a movie that'll "entertain" you in a funny way, but it might make you think about some things in a different light.
