Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

Or (Mon Tresor)

Tonight instead of going out, I watch this Israeli movie, Or (Mon Tresor).

What a heartbreaking film. So very touching, at the end you want to reach out and take the characters in your arms. I don't know if there is an English version. The one I watched was Hebrew with French subtitles.

A highschool girl does everything she can to bring in money to get her prostitute mother off of the streets, now that her health is suffering.

You can read the reviews at the site above, or if you don't want any spoilers, here is the synopsis. Gritty realism is right.

Now that I am wanting to foster adopt, I find it so hard to watch movies like this.
Is it right to take the kids away from negligent parents with drug/ prostitution problems? What would that have done to this mother and child? And yet leaving them together, look what it is doing to this mother and child. I have no idea which is sadder, really I don't.

Well, I have the movie Kinsey left to watch and then i am going to bed. The time is going back an hour tonight, so one more hour of sleep. I can use it, I have been burning the candle at both ends for about two months now. I really need 7-8 hrs sleep a night, not 5 1/2.

Anyways, if you can get this film, Or, Mon tresor, I recommend it.

oh, I can see it is just coming out in the States now... here are the playdates... only Ohio, Oregon and NY are listed here, between Nov 05 and Jan 06.
