| Old school
It is really very old school and very subtle. Still the sentiment is very strong and the acting is more than solid. Though some may call it slow and think it is nothing more than a documentary. Though that is not a bad thing in my book, you have to decide how you feel about it. It's family driven plot has values to offer.

While some things may seem ridiculous to people who live in the city, this stuff indeed happens. So while I am not sure if it actually based on something in particular, it is more than obvious, that in general this has happens. A very dark drama, with great natural performances, that elevate the movie clearly :o)
