Quirky
24 December 2019 | by brynt2009See all my reviews

A very underrated film,so quirky and ,eventually,romantic. A small understated film like this only works if the writing,direction and acting are first rate and ,wow,that sure is the case here underlined with a killer closing line. Wonderful film,enjoyed it so much,proof that films of this ilk can still be made .
