What's left when you have nothing left?
14 December 2011 | by gumbicoSee all my reviews

Plot: Story surrounds two people that find each other after their own lives fall apart when they are diagnosed with AIDS. Forced to live outside the village, they and others like them are discriminated against by their own neighbors and loved ones. In this setting, a man and a woman decide to make use of what time they have left.

Review: Not much to say here really, the story is very slow and the characters aren't that likable. But the only saving grace of this movie was the bond that grew between the two main characters. In the end, I didn't like them any more than I did earlier, but their love story was heartfelt and true.
