slow-paced but entertaining
1 April 2001 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

This is a well-made British film reminiscent of Mike Leigh and Alan Bennet. There's nothing spectacular about it, from its setting in sedate Southport to its main character - a municipal gardener. However, if you can put up with the slow pace it offers you a veritable slice of life in a northern seaside town. A gentle poetic film about love in latter years.

Also from a personal point of few it captures the spirit of a town I grew up in with fine cinematography that almost makes me nostalgic to go back, but I don't think I could cope with the laid-back pace and if this story is as exciting as you get then I guess I'm better off staying in the city!
