Loved the story, loved the acting, esp the Italian/French guy who should be getting more roles, and while the kid was annoying, he was supposed to be, and loved how the Italian/French guy showed his roots in how they handle all things in life, with a type of acceptance we in the US lack. That said, the litter was heartbreaking. Just heartbreaking. And they contributed to it. For the life of me, I don't understand our need to litter as we do.
