Beguiling, absorbing, funny, emotional movie
Wonderfully funny, sad, charming, fresh story from a subject that could
be maudlin. The writing and direction pack a wallop, the acting is
superb--it's so natural that you might think you were eavesdropping on
the family's life.
Sit back and enjoy every minute and every character. Mama lovingly
tries to run a family that is way beyond her power. Her antics with a
spray bottle of potion add a terrific touch to the story. The music
will have you bouncing in your seat.
The two stars should not remain unknown for long--they are completely
captivating. Two faces that you never get tired of looking at and which
deliver believable emotions.
The comic touches are frequent and laugh-out-loud funny and never in
poor taste. Bravo to the actors, dancers, writer and director.
