Great movie about real love, & life.
This is not your typical Disney, or American, movie. It's smart, funny and shows slightly exaggerated characters with heart. The cinematography is gorgeous, and the adults are very real and very human. Also, many hilarious parts. I took my 2 boys, ages 14 & 15, plus a mature 13 yr old female cousin. The kids were embarrassed, but I know they liked it. We had lots to discuss afterward, including what is love, how do you forget mistakes, what is heartbreak, and what a real relationship like. There are mature images & themes, as mentioned by the reviewer, but if you believe that love is more powerful than war, you will embrace this movie on many levels. Another plus is the wonderful, sophisticated older couple in the movie which defies every awful stereotype of people who cross the border to visit relatives. If simple rom-coms don't feel right to you, you will love this one.
