  • Sitting, waiting, wishing – The Waiting City Review

    In case you didn’t already know, Asia is totally the new Europe. You can attribute that to the glut of movies repainting each and every corner of the continent as a glorious new tourist destination...

  • DVD was unplayable on any device - 4 DVD players.

  • As parents to grown healthy children, grand children and great grand children I really felt this movie showed what people that cannot have them go through. A wonderful movie and a great story.

  • Really like this movie. Very telling story and unfortunately happens in real life. As a mother I could not imagine what it would be like to go through all of that to have a child in my life and completely how driven I would be to make it happen.

  • This is a powerful movie. A little slow in parts but a worthy Australian production.

  • I had high expectations of this film and was disappointed. India was beautifully captured but the relationship between the two leads lacked believable tension. The storyline was cliche as was the dialogue at times. The editing felt choppy and disconnected in parts. There were some moments of emotion however but not enough to make it an engaging movie to watch.
