Brillent, Funny, and adult nature
31 December 2000 | by farmjanemSee all my reviews

A farmer looks after his sick mother for years and when she dies all the rest of the family come out of the woodwork. It is a black comedy with some really funny moments and an excelent cast. James Fleet who I am now a big fan of after seeing this movie is brilliant. I want to see all his other movies now. At first he comes across as hard. Its only at the end when what has happened to his Mother hits home. Its really a comedy drama so not for action movie fans, but there is a bit of a nailbiting ending that keeps you guessing. I saw this movie on cable tv and had never heard of it, just liked the sound of it. I must say it is a much better than some of those high budget films you hear about all the time. 10 out of 10
