Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Really good film. Enjoyed by all. Excellet film for village halls.

The film was very well received, with several coming to watch it a second time. The subject appeared to be a sad reflection on life, but the film is very inspiring - with many wanting to rush out with walking boots and rucksacks!

Good audience, good choice for older demographic
