A fantastic father/daughter portrait
20 March 2018 | by michellebuerSee all my reviews

A fantastic and amazing movie.

The movie portrays a powerful father/daughter relationship, and shows the strength of a woman that will fight against all odds for her father.

She shows a vulnerability, and a intimacy that I have seldom seen in a documentary. The way she doesn't accept her fathers sometimes irrelevant excuses, and the way she doesn't back down from her father during one of his rage fits. It shows a certain kind of strength, and courage.

Her tears shows how hard the battle can be, but also how though she is. Being a child of an addict is hard, and not everyone can show this type of vulnerability with that background.

Sofia shows that she is more than her background. She portrays both the battle the "children of" often experience, and the battle the addicts goes through. In addition to that, she illustrates the hope many people have when their loved ones succumb to drug abuse. It is though for all next of kin, but especially for "children of", that might end up with the parental responsibility their parents normally would have.

She depicts the vulnerable side to her father, and shows addicts as a human being. A human being with their own hopes and dreams for the future, and not just a characterization of a problem.

A lot of the challenges we have in our society is emphasized in the movie, when Sofia has to fight a bureaucratic and exhausting system to help her father. In a society where the drug politics have failed our citizens. A national problem, and definitively, an international problem.

Hopefully this movie will create a debate both national and international. A debate about the people which lives have been affected by drug use, and the addicts that have been, and are, forsaken by our governments.

Thought provoking and humorous movie

12/10 would watch again.
