Great acting. Tangible and absolutely hopeful. Obviously the issues are larger and more complex but the glimmers of hope that this film puts forth are simple and so deeply human. Thank you Marc Fouchard for putting so much energy into making this film!

Good, but other social ills are normalized and accepted in this movie.

Trivialization, perpetuation and normalization of others forms ...Read more

More power to those who want to participate in an AIDS or a human-rights-walk. I have zero problems with either and both deserve commendation. The problem arises when either one blatantly exploits the other, for example, those walking to raise AIDS awareness while surreptitiously testing ...Read more

bah. tangentally adapting the imperfect analogy and still missing the main point, losing the thread. also, you should just say what you mean, stop dancing around specificity since you seem to care so much. no matter.
methinks you misunderstand exploitation and expense... the road to ...Read more

Nope, your point has been fully acknowledged and fully concurred with. And my analogy is far from imperfect, it is something corporations and individuals with means indulge in with impunity, and even hubris. Take care.

Thoughtful, moving, and heartfelt. A film desperately needed in these times, showing the power of love overcoming fear and hatred.
