Gentle love story about the complexities of relationships.
22 June 2012 | by fbr1066See all my reviews

Having read the previous two reviews, I have to wonder whether the bad review was actually about the same film, but I guess if you're looking for obvious, signposted, badly written and acted, soap-style melodrama, this film probably isn't for you.

I found it subtle, simple, well acted and sensitively handled, particularly the aspects about terminal illness and how it devastates families. The main characters were believable and certainly *did* have chemistry.

I also enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Dumfries & Galloway and found this a great compliment to the film.
