The movie is named after the Ford model - Gran Torino, produced by Clint Eastwood.
Amazing dialogue , really Snappy ! Its a total mentoring type of movie.
Its about a troubled young teenager in a Hmong/Vietnemese neighbourhood trying to come to terms with his identity in an alien American culture.
You literally feel for the characters. This beauty belongs to the genre of a mystical mentor/student pair seen in Karate kid. You almost feel that Clint Eastwood'd character is just about to show how to kick box or shoot like an ace.
The ending gives the movie the twisted and compassionate ending.
