A beautiful, touching and nostalgic film.
28 September 2016 | by fessicajorsterSee all my reviews

Beautiful sound and imagery from the start. But slow to get going.. Once the story of old man time, and light, and family progressed I was swept along with it. Complex themes win lots of hooks for the viewer to relate to. Love, imagination, pain, coping mechanisms, childhood, family, the progress of the world and of life. At times it was tense, funny and a bit weird. But over all it was a visual feast. I loved it. And would love to know where it was filmed. The cast were brilliant, not least 8-year-old Rose and her brother and sister who were the undoubted stars. Beth Orton was Whaley believable, but I wanted to know what was wrong with her.
