Excellent acting in an emotionally engaging film
I think this was my first foray into Israeli cinema and overall I was pretty satisfied. Nicely acted, nice bit of tension built up as the story developed.
Beautiful, funny and heartwarming, wonderfully sprinkled with sarcasm.
Larry, if they took the easy way out, would they even be a movie and a story...???
If you want reality, just stick to your life mate...
Nice effort from Israel. Believable acting, good story.
Sensitive, interesting storyline, light and easy to watch.
I absolutely loved it. Very easy to watch. What a cutie the little boy Noodle is, he is certainly the star of the show. Sideline story relating to her sister's marriage is a little irrelevant but fleshes out the characters. In response to Larry below, the story explains why they can't take the child to the Chinese Embassy and why they do not want to take him to the Israeli authorities. Were you not paying attention?
Thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming story. I completely forgot I was reading subtitles. Simple storyline, but entirely captivating.
I ordered this Movie based on the good Reviews, what a mistake!
This Movie defies any logic at all!
Why would you not take an abondoned Child to the Police??
After finding out where the Chinese kids mother is why not take the child to the Chinese Embassy so that they can arrange for them to be re-united?? Oh no let's not do that, let's get some DNA testing done, etc, etc.
Absolutely illogical nonsensical Garbage!
I really enjoyed this movie and so did my 13 yr old son who watched it with me. The characters are very real, you can really relate to them, I found them all fascinating and the young Chinese boy 'Noodle' is delightfully charming. This movie tugs at the heartstrings, it will bring a tear to the eye of every mum (and dads too possibly). It also has a lot of humour, and Miri's sister excels in sarcasm that you can't help but like and admire. A movie with a lot of warmth and heart. (ISRAELI SUBTITLED MOVIE)
Great moving experience with great characters. I only wish that more foreign movies were in English, although the subs were easy to read and did not subtract much from the movie. A great family movie.
A lovely thought provoking little story.
Subtitles a bit too small & too quick for "oldies" !
Not usually a fan of foreign films but this was excellent. I didn't even notice I was reading most of the film. A beautiful heartwarming story. Worth watching.
I enjoyed this movie because it was not quiet what I expected. It's a wonderful story without being too sugary, and also lets us into lives that are just a little different to what we are used to seeing. Who knew?
Fantastic film! An absolute delight. Brilliant acting - Noodle superb - as were the 2 sisters. Unique plot - tension builds... I don't know why there aren't more films like this. Plus all ages can enjoy. Highly recommended!!!
a nice family movie right till the end
A simple plot but delivered well.
I loved this film. Great story and performances. Not sure how Chinese people end up in Israel!
I hated it, it wasn't clear on the review that it wasn,t in English
I loved this movie. It's a beautiful story and you will just fall in love with Noodle. I was taken by surprise with how much I enjoyed watching this.
