Sweet, moving film
11 December 2011 | by chris-ywamSee all my reviews

My wife and I stumbled across this movie purely by chance, liked the fact that James Nesbitt was the main actor and gave it a try - so glad we did.

This is a refreshingly innocent and moving film which inspired us to love our children more.

There's a lot of humour mixed in with a gentle tale of loss and love. Despite the fact that there's not much dialogue it isn't the least bit boring, and Nesbitt gives a winning performance.

We turned this film on intending to watch half of it and go to bed, but ended up watching the whole movie until 1.25am!

Do yourself a favour - if you are looking for a sweet but not cheesy story give Blessed a go.
