a slice of life
8 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have waited six years to see this movie as it got very limited release in Australia. Finally it came to television. It is such a 'feel good' movie, it brought a tear to my eye and to me that makes a movie good. Yes, its about old age but we all get there one day. It was well directed, edited, nice music score, all characters well acted and cast just right. It has some very funny moments and the greyhound racing is something unusual to see in a movie. It's amazing how one day can bring so much happiness to a retirement center. This movie is suitable for all ages or at least from teenage up. They would be able to see in the characters their grand parents. You distributors out there, why not give this a go and show it in your countries. Yes it does have limited appeal but those who see it will talk about it. What about a DVD release and that way it will get to everyone and anyone? Do it and in doing so support the Australian film industry. 10 out of 10.
