Of all films ever...
27 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely loved this film. I laughed, I smiled and I cried.

The script is quirky and wonderfully imaginative. In an hour and a half 'What we did on our Holiday' manages to dissect family life and reconstruct it to embrace every aspect of the complete gamut of the generations and their interactions. And it does so with both sympathy and hilarity.

Of all films ever, it's the one that has made me feel best about being human. Flawed is fine in each and every generation, but the beginnings and endings are infinitely easier than the muddle in the middle.

The acting throughout is exceptional but the child actors deserve a sky-fall of medals. Great stuff!
