One of the most moving films I've seen
11 February 2012 | by (South Norwood) – See all my reviews

The previous reviewers have said most of what I feel about this film, but I'd like to emphasise the touching nature of the relationship between Eden, disabled by Joubert's syndrome, and her "big gran", 85 year-old Gladys, and their relationship with the changing landscape of a vanishing Britain. Like Powell & Pressburger with "A Canterbury Tale" Andrew Kotting presents us with a mystical vision of pilgrims searching for "blessings". Perhaps the lollipop lady motif, Eden dressed as the Virgin Mary or Kotting in a monk's garb are not entirely whimsical? Suggestion: the BFI should have a Kotting season, and include his recent film with a grown-up 23 year-old Eden, "Louyre: This our Still Life".
