My Rating:
4 / 5 stars: A heart wrenching story but incredibly captivating and a very good movie. The film was done nicely and it has an outstanding cast giving brilliant performances. It focuses on different emotions that will surely tear you up. There's a scene that really had a strong impact on me, that I suddenly felt a lump growing in my throat, tears filled my eyes and i force to stop them from falling, but my silent tears began flowing freely down my cheek. This is indeed a poignant drama that really got me hooked.
I highly recommend this movie.

Synopsis:
To save the failing orphanage he runs in India, Danish transplant Jacob Petersen (Mads Mikkelsen) returns to his homeland to meet a self-indulgent businessman named Jorgen who's offered a generous donation -- and who represents everything the noble-minded Jacob abhors. Complicating matters further are the unusual strings Jorgen has attached to his so-called gift. Rolf Lassgard co-stars in this Oscar-nominated emotional powerhouse of a drama.
