Overall - A Moving Film
3 October 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Don't be put off by some of the 'Shortland Street Grade' acting by a few of the cast, the film on a whole is quite moving and thought provoking. The young girl that was cast who goes missing was adorable, which makes her disappearance all the more distressing for the audience. The three major incidents: the disappearance (the waterfall), the affair, and the dementia add up to give the lead male a Job like experience to overcome. The movie avoids some of the grief clichés like the table clearing and house destroying outbursts and the wife never verbally blames the husband for the disappearance. This leaves room for the audience to try and interpret the subtleties of the leading husband and wife's actions and comments, who both give wonderful performances.
