I've seen the movie just recently and was so amazed by it. It was able to show the real situations in third world countries like mine, and with the two brothers showing different ways on how you could deal and survive in those kinds of situations, with the rewards and consequences of whatever ways you have chosen. It also has the twist of how people from third world countries can still have fun living their lives watching late night game shows despite of their situations. I liked the creative way they integrated Jamal's experiences and the way he won "Who wants to be a Millionaire". Experience really, is still the best teacher! lol! This movie really touched me. How about you? What do you think about it?

Hi harshrosicky. I think this kind of movie can be appreciated more from a person's subjective point of view and not on the technical aspects. More on the bigger picture of what's really happening and the lessons that a person could learn. The person watching could relate more if he has experienced or have seen and knows people who are experiencing the same thing. So it's really more of how a person could relate to it. As what you've said, this is not your type of movie. What kind of movies do you watch by the way? =)

I think it is a great movie. After watched that movie, I recommended my friends who haven't yet to watch it. That movie touched me. It inspires me not to give up in everything I do and also always have a faith for a better life.

Yeah, I agree with you xiaoling, it really has a great lesson to learn. Especially the roles played by the two brothers, it really happens in third world countries. Now I'm wondering if the writer really experienced some of the scenes there.
