This film was recommended to me by a friend who watched it. A black comedy with heart - I really enjoyed watching. The acting from the 4 mature leads was excellent. Fair enough a bit cheesy in places but it had a gentle charm - even though murder involved. It's not going to be a film for everyone but for the right audience (including me) it is a winner!
