It provides a very real experience, touches on very important issues, builds itself upon feelings that are familiar to many...teaches the audience some lessons & tugs at heartstrings & make tears flow with its painful scenes acted out by superb actresses (Anak is dominated by females & I'm sad to say that the guy who plays Michael isn't great)...I'm not sure how the film can be further improved. But, I'm sure that there's still considerate room for improvement because it is a memorable movie but surely not one that many would list it as one of their favourite movies. width="20" valign="bottom" style="color:#B2B7F2;font-size:{{#switch:280% 10px=20px 30px=60px 40px=80px 50px=100px 60px=120px

Its emotion-laden plot, which I thought was its weakness, I now see as its richness. width="20" valign="bottom" style="color:#B2B7F2;font-size:{{#switch:280% 10px=20px 30px=60px 40px=80px 50px=100px 60px=120px
