you might think i didn't enjoy this but that is quite contrary. i felt so moved. it was incredible. i believe my 10-year-old-poor-but-happy-island-girl part of my life resonated most with this film. there was also the tough (but blatantly loving) father.
this film is so real and surreal, the way they intertwined the story with the child's fantasy was magic. my favorite scenes were with the mother, especially the scene with the stove. that was simply beautiful.
