Great film
2 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw this in the cinema and loved it. It defies definition... so I'll try. It's about a soul on the brink of death, being passed from body to body and experiencing other possible existences. (But I could be wrong.)

Performances are understated and true (I especially liked Kate Ashfield's); individual scenes viewed in isolation play like extracts from an intelligent TV drama. However the audience has to quickly abandon any attempt to be bound by pre-conceptions of Genre: this is the ultimate genre-buster! Disconcerting at first, then unexpectedly liberating.

Great performances, engrossing tale. Recommended.
