Thanks for others useful and helpful comments
25 December 2006 | by andrewgates-2See all my reviews

Thanks to "Author: Tom May (joycean_chap@hotmail.com) from Sunderland, England" for your very useful comments on the film. Like a number of other viewers I found the ending just too much. I just did not get it! However thanks to Tom, it now has clicked and made the whole thing so very much worthwhile. I thought the spiritual content of the film very useful and interesting, and, though not a member of the Savation Army I thought the beliefs and and portrayal of it very reasonable and respectful. The whole cast was wonderful, but I do have to give 10/10 to Ken Stott who threw his whole talent into the role which must have exhausted him.
