The movie itself is like a slow train...it moves very very slowly (yes a slow pace), but it is a wonderful slice of life story as it emphasizes that life has to go forward, in a positive way, just like a train on its railway, no matter what the diversion of paths, or changes in priorities in life due to circumstances it encounters. Also, like a train, the main character still strives to make a positive impact on people surrounding him. Another thing to note is there is no over-the-top sequences in its drama. Although there are some clichéd parts noted, the really touching moments offset the weaknesses mentioned. A well made movie.
