Excellent film
23 June 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film, well written and superbly acted. Matt Whelan is a revelation as the terminally ill Michael who embarks on one final hurrah. The scenery filmed is stunning and the European winter sets the scene for what is often a sad and harrowing tale. Roxane Mesquida plays the part of the mysterious Sylvia and does a fine job of slowly revealing her issues and demons to the audience. Many themes run through this film, the major being the joys of friendship. A moving film and one of the best NZ films made for a long time. It is a shame this has not been given a wider audience as the cast and crew deserve much plaudits for what is an outstanding film. My only gripe would be the title of the film which suggests a light hearted comedy piece, when the reality is the exact opposite.
