I found this film to be totally engaging and vibrant. I couldn’t believe how quickly the time went watching this. I found it to be very entertaining and the film just flew by for me. The song ‘Remember Me’ is so catchy that I found myself singing it several days later after watching the film. The main themes in this film are death, family and about having a passion.
