While the film didn't have the element of surprise, conflict or any major issue that it wishes to convey, still, I found it interesting to watch.  I think it effectively showcased the naughty and mischievous side of kids and of kids, who, driven by hunger,  for food and for things to explore. The girl is instantly interested in clothes and CDs, while the boy was focused on the food.  These are not kids who are prone to bad things like stealing but rather, these are kids who are bored with the usual four corners of their home and who are physically hungry for food but also hungry for things of luxury which they don't have.  I  was amused with the boy's dancing skills,  the kids do well with their candid acting performances.  Do check out this flick guys!
