Another Little Gem


A dear friend recommended this film to me but I didn't get around to watching it until yesterday.

All I can say is, HOW do movies that are this good fly under the radar for so long? Americans who won't go to non-Hollywood-blockbuster movies are missing out on so much. (And who is this Gerard Butler?? Grrrrrrrrrowl!)

I've see a few terrific non-American films with children at the center (but none are "chick flicks") One is Millions and the other is Iranian (subtitled) and called Children of Heaven.

When the remake of The Shaggy Dog is making a gazillion dollars at the box office and no one sees these truly great films, you have to wonder.
