I loved this. It was playing on the TV today and I was instantly hooked and in tears . . . followed by smiles... then more tears (honestly I was a wreck by the end).
I wondered whether people who believe that 'economic migrants' should not be allowed to travel to Europe in search of a better life, should watch this. I'm pretty sure it would change their minds (that is if they have any sort of heart).
