All wound up and nowhere to go
2 November 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I thought that this started well, with dramatic impact that anyone who is not the person they once were could identify with. The whole world has turned upside down, others are doing well and we are on the scrap heap. Some interesting vignettes of Wellington/New Zealand life and lovely views on those unmistakable roads. The drama increased and the family grows on us, we get drawn into the web. Highs and lows and then another low and then it's over. Wrapped up and abruptly finished. Disappointing - did they run out of money? The characters are strong, and beautifully portrayed, the story is very relevant, and the viewer feels the pain. The Irish singing lent another delightful dimension to the story. I just wish it had continued for another half hour and tapered away gradually. I felt cheated.
