A film of humour, heart and wit
6 April 2019 | by vkingastcSee all my reviews

This film has a lot of heart, wit and humour. You really begin to feel for these characters and this donkey. I found myself shockingly quite invested and was sad when it ended. Christina has done a briliant job with her direction. Everything was concise, intentional and had a great pace to it.
