Low key but very memorable film

"it is really refreshing to see a film centred around the lower class that doesn't linger on familiar themes like substance abuse and prostitution. this film holds strongly onto the bond between mother and daughter, and fiercely defends their dignity, though they encounter some challenging economic and social problems.
the genuine performances, the style of photography and the perfect casting choices contribute to this astonishing piece of cinema. watching this film, one desperately wants a glimmer of good luck for the main characters. the conclusion isn't neat and tidy, and doesn't make for a happy ending, but most of the time that is a more realistic portrayal of life, then, isn't it?"
