The last scene in "Innocent Voices" is so touching that you might be like me, you will never forget this film. Few movies have been so touching about the plight of children in third world countries. "Innocent Voices" brings a message to the world from these children. All the children in the film should be "Child Actors of the Year". Without exception, each of them is so compelling in telling the story that shows the limited protections to their health and safety! Only for an adult audience but few of us will ever forget these children!

Heartwrenching but seemingly very real and true accounts of what families in ANY war torn provinces must deal with. A very well done movie that focuses on the human aspects instead of the violence, although the violence all around them is horrifying.
