CGiii Comment

From the creator of the exceptional This is Us, Dan Fogelman generously serves a great big dollop of his sharp-in-take-of-breath style of writing. He is a master of his craft...time and timelines are thrown to the wind, the effect is consecutive sharp-in-takes-of-breaths. For Life Itself have a box of hankies at hand...you'll need them, time and time again!

The film is about love...in all its beguiling shapes and forms and sizes. Two continents, two familes...too many tragedies. Oscar Isaac throws in a performance that could - quite easily - change the trajectory of his career...towards meatier roles and that - much-desired - Oscar nod! And, Laia Costa delivers a monolgue that will drain the very last tear out of your already tear-stained eyes!

But...the star of this show is Dan Fogelman - as distinctive and distinguished a writer as he is, he certainly knows how to weave a story from so many threads without leaving anything dangling. Strangely, this is only Mr Fogelman's second feature...everyone knows he can write a great story, with Life Itself he shows how well he can tell those stories.

Sharp intakes of breath, massive out-pouring of tears.
