A beautiful, funny and very emotional rollercoaster...
2 October 2003 | by (Stafford, England) – See all my reviews

This film has always stuck in my mind as the one that moves me like no other. I've had it on vhs taped off the telly for 14 years now, and when I need a good cry it's always the one I turn to. After recently losing a close relative to cancer, I am now aware of how important it is to laugh and be positive in the face of adversity. A real gem, with incredible performances from the cast, especially Timothy Dalton who is fantastic. This is also a chance to see the fabulous Janet McTeer in a very early role. See it now! (If you can find it that is!)
