A very low budget film about mid-life crisis that is involving and very original. Definitely more European than English in style - it doesn't spell everything out, gives you time to get involved and its well acted and beautifully shot. The subject matter is quite painful but the way it is performed makes it often really funny - always true to life and never sentimental. All the actors were completely convincing,and anyone who has been through the break-up of a long term relationship will find a lot here that really hits home. Apparently the dialogue was improvised and maybe that's what makes it so realistic. Not your usual British film but something really special.
