Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

‘Brilliant’ ‘like a European film..’ ‘loved the music’ ‘ amazing portrayal of grief’. Some older members of audience didn’t like the swearing esp in first half but others said it was appropriate to the story... went down well with audience.

Well worth seeing. Beautifully shot, brilliantly acted, cleverly-directed, hard-hitting, robust ,funny in the right places and very thought-provoking.

For me this was a great film. Large themes, brilliantly acted, gritty. However as a flicks movie it was probably a poor choice. The turnout was poor and opinion mixed. Too much for our audience!
