I just saw this movie on TV by chance - I really didn't realise how good it would be. I really enjoyed this movie, and found it heart-warming and emotional to watch. Great acting and interplay with the characters too.
There is something about this unique simple movie which is really charming and will just draw you in. It makes a really great change to the usual rubbish movies that are dished out from Hollywood.
This film shows you don't need special effects, sex or profuse swearing to make a good movie - It is so simplistic yet so effective - it will make you cherish the small simple things in life, and leave you feeling in a really positive mood. When you watch this movie, you will suddenly feel like going outdoors too(!) - Watch it and see - It was almost like reading a good book for me rather than watching a movie - it had that special charm to it. Great stuff.
