Great job on this movie!
9 February 2017 | by rhayatSee all my reviews

It's worthy of some sort of award. Really really good job here. It really touched me.

Nice to see a good, wholesome, short ghost story that doesn't resort to special effects or shock tactics.

The characters are well-developed, even though some of them are only seen briefly.

The historic setting, of both the main character and Britain, is long enough ago that it brings feelings of nostalgia, but recent enough that most of us can relate to it.

This is movie I can recommend to everybody, regardless of age, gender or background. Everybody can appreciate it.
