Accepting yourself and others as they are
30 October 2000 | by smwild-2See all my reviews

Beautifully done picture about being yourself and tolerance for others.The boy Bruno (Alex D. Linz) is superb is this role and the mother also does a great job. Probably won't make much money but deserves to more than 95% of latest films.
