This was incredibly powerful. I almost can't bear to watch it. I don't think something like this could ever run in the US... Could it? I was really moved by this. The child's acting is incredible. How he manages to keep his lines straight while he is being shaken; how he doesn't anticipate being hit; just amazing.

A full 10 out of my point of view. It was absolutely amazing how good the child's acting was. Extremely powerful, extremely touching and extremely unbearable to watch. A real great idea put in practice using an extremely tough message.
Amazing!
