I just happen to see this film in Bangkok International Film Festival 2004. When I first heard of the film I didn't really know what to think. It is a little known film from a little known director and it's surrounded by other festival favorites. The storyline however was interesting: a family struggling to save a pre-mature baby who is 17 weeks early. This is a very delicate subject to talk about let alone making movie about it. The script was written very well and the director tackled this film with sensitivity. Kate Ashfield delivered a heartbreaking realistic performance as a mother who believes that her tiny baby is developing his own personality. This movie portrays maternal instinct in a unique way that sometimes it can bring you to the verge of tears and sometimes make you smile. Director Sarah Gavron had done a fantastic job in capturing the emotions from both the mother and the father of the baby (although the film was mainly focused on the mother character). The contrast and color scheme of different scenes also help convey the mood of the characters. For me, I think this is a film that will touch everyone's heart. I'll be looking forward to Ms. Gavron next feature film.
