Good movie, heart-breaking movie, a movie worth watching.

Tall as the Baobab Tree

Beautifully acted and filmed. One wants it to turn out differently. But the fact it doesn't really nails it, giving a most lively visceral understanding of these lives in this...

Wonderful pacing and gorgeous cinematography. Story left me upset since I'm a father and can't stand to see children abused in any way.
