Great film about mother/son relationship
The premise of this movie might seem familiar to many. A single abusive father raises his son in the poorest neighborhood of the city. One day, he brings home a new "wife" that he bought from a brothel. She becomes the boy's 11th mother, and they start off hating each other. Like any other work of cinema, you should know by now that they cannot continue hating each other, and eventually their interactions blossom into a real parent/child relationship.
The little boy was a great actor, very convincing and played his part very well. I liked the mother as well. The actress portraying her is very attractive, yet gives off a comfortable aura, kinda like a real mother. Their chemistry on screen is great. Some scenes are very emotional, and it is expected that you will cry somewhere during this film. The pace was perfect too. There are no big action or sex scenes, but it manages to keep your attention throughout the film. At the end, it is a rewarding experience.
