Our Review

The adaption and presentation of 'The light to guide' deserves acknowledgement. This movie has a deep subject matter which is sweet and emotional.

Cinematography is mesmerizing the way its captured and the scenery is absolutely breath taking. A touching story about an old lady who experiences something extraordinary. The soundtrack is remarkably touching as it brings imaginary, dreamy, surreal and otherworldly feelings with mixed-emotion.
