One of the most moving and powerful endings to any film I've ever seen. Absolutely unforgettable.
Such a beautiful and sad film. Quite amazing it is so good considering the lack of resources and mostly amateur actors. You really couldn't tell. The well told and heartbreaking story makes up for any moments of melodrama.
Very good from its time objectively!
