Just loved this movie
29 January 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Just loved this movie. Pretends to be nothing more than it is: a beautiful, romantic, (almost) real life portrait of people/couples having their problems and their joys. Good acting - as usual - by Anne-Marie Duff (probably known by most people for playing the Fiona character in the first two seasons of the television series Shameless) and most of the others too. Even though you know - almost from the beginning - how the movie probably is going to end, the way towards reaching this end is paved with interesting scenes about inter-personal relationships in all kind of ways: (married) couples, ex-husband, neighbours, single mother and very intimate and personal (no, not in that way) relationships at work. Everything to me was very convincing. The whole story takes place in a suburban London environment. I can surely recommend this one!
