2 November 2018 | by ceri-edwards2See all my reviews

This film could be read as a romance or an exploration of grief with a hopeful and healing energy. It may have flaws, according to the rulebook, but how dull would film be if everyone read the rulebook instead of making film with their heart and soul. I have watched the film several times, sometimes years apart. Unlike many, even of my favourite films, this film grips me emotionally and engrosses me all the way through. I find myself having to unclench muscles as I have tensely been swept along with the emotion. I am always left feeling as though every broken relationship has hope. I am sorry she had to make this film, but very grateful she did and I'm sure her brother's soul was touched.
