this is a beautifully made film about one troubled neighbourhood during the incident. the message right at the end sums up the whole film nicely, amazingly it also explains LIFE itself. the beginning of the film may seem a bit cheesy to me, but after reading reviews from the locals who enjoyed it i feel that this film is as realistic as brooklyn itself. anyhow i salute the actors for making he characters so real and accurate. i salute the direction of this film that makes it feel more like a decent home video rather than over-sentimental dramas. i salute this film for being very wholesome, heart warming and educational at heart, it is one of those films that made all 2007 oscar's best pic nominations looked like pieces of overrated failures even when they are combined.
