Very MovingBy BooBooBear (15 reviews) from Leicester , 25 Oct 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]A beautifully made film which was quite a surprise. The front cover makes it look really weird and when you look at some scenes out of context you'd think it a bit bonkers but it's the journey of how it gets there that makes it so emotional. It's a lovely moving film about grief and awakening. I can't say too much without spoiling some surprise moments but well worth a watch if you don't mind subtitles.

despair and new perspectivesBy filmamateur (104 reviews) , 30 Nov 2013very moving, I cried from beginning to end and laugh also a lot. As a mother it is incredibly frightening and as a daughter, a reminder of how we can be so childish&condescending!! A delicious slice of life filmed beautifully,
Excellent film.By NunkyTed (29 reviews) , 25 Sep 2013A salutary tale of love and loss with a truly surprising twist. It just goes to show: you don't know what you've got till it's gone. Watch this and try to lead a better life in future.
trip to humanityBy bleublanc (9 reviews) , 23 Jan 2013What a subtle majestic movie. It seems so alien and yet so familiar. The pictures are beautiful, the acting rings true and life is portrayed raw. I saw this movie a year ago and am still recommending it around.

Beautiful storyBy Chesney4u (1 review) , 29 Dec 2011Such a beautiful film. Setting the acting the emotions that fly at you.
Its a slow placed but its perfect slowly revealing the pain/lost/love for someone.
I loved it, now thinking of buying the DVD.
Makes you think about the other side of the relationship with parents.
