One Mother, Two Fathers, Three Children
5 February 2002 | by LeFreak-3See all my reviews

Being a personal friend of the producer I was invited to the premiere at the International Film Festival 2001 in Ghent, Belgium. When I first saw the movie, I had trouble staying awake .. i had worked that day for 8 hours behind a TV-camera and the combination of the heavy story, the sometimes erratic camera movements and the tiredness from work made it impossible to fairly judge the movie .. so I went to see it again a couple of days later, well rested. And then it was bingo, you really enjoy the characters, you don't mind the way it is filmed, and you wish at the end of the movie to see it again someday soon .. it has some pretty funny moments in it, and at some points in the movie you forget it's fiction and you really get the idea you're watching a documentary .. this is as close to real life you can get in the movies, and the actors do their job very very well, especially the children .. if you get a chance to see it, make sure you do .. but also make sure you are well rested!!
