Way too sappy. And sap isn't bad every now and then.My Movie Rating: 4 / 10
Lovely performance by Rodrigo Noya but the script is too wordy which mars the enjoyment of the film particularly for those watching subtitled versions.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
Full of quotable lines from the cute and shrewd title character. For once, I would have liked an english audio version. There was nonstop text on the screen throughout. I had to backtrack if I wanted to catch action or facial expressions. Still a warm and insightful movie though.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
