I really love this film. I can really identify with feeling like a stranger in your own culture. Not only is this really funny, but it is also so poingant and heartfelt in the end. Great writing, awesome performances by the actors, and beautiful direction and cinematography. There's a reason it won tons of awards in the festivals. Bravo.
