Little old ladies gossip and argue..
19 February 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A new cottage is being built in the town, and there is a "competition" to see who gets to live in it - the owners have stated it will be given to "the married couple with the most number of grandchildren", so that the cottage can be passed down through the family, as if an heir loom. This leads to frantic tallying of the number of grandchildren everyone has and a lot of sniping done by various little old ladies whilst their husbands look pained at the fuss.

A very oddball little film (little, it's only just over an hour in run time); that is anything but predictable! A few births, deaths, and marriages ensue that you'll have no idea who is going to get the cottage, until the moment the key is handed out. Overall, I'd give it about a 6 or 7 out of 10. At least if you don't like it, you don't have to sit through much before it's over!
