Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Many hated the awful language but all appreciated the film.

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

‘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.
