Summer 2007 - External Reviews

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?) - At the very least watch it when it releases on DVD
quick review:

Sure, we can choose to close our eyes once again to the farmer suicide issue because seems so distant. But, just like we read about it in the newspapers, write about it on our blogs, we should watch this movie because someone dared to make it.
