  • Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    A dark look at life and sweet moments that come with it. The cast does a good job and the tough subject matter is handled well. Not bad, just drags in pacing.
  • Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
    This isn't realism, this is exaggeration of unbelievable proportions. Not being white and subjected to racism and physical assaults after moving to the USA, I should care more, but the plot is too "on the nose" and predictable. At least there is excellent acting.
  • Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
    social realism at its most accomplished, bringing us close to the perilous suspenseful survival stories of two African immigrant children in Belgium. The loving familial relationship between Tori and Lokita sustains them - and pulls us in - while all around them they face indifference, exploitation and abuse. Hard to watch, but truly rewarding and moving.
