CGiii Comment

Just when you least expect it...a magical little film pops up and - quite literally - takes your breath away.

There are moments when you will gasp, cry, laugh and scream at the screen...in frustration...as this stubborn old bugger remains a stubborn old bugger.

It's a beautiful looking film. Sensitively directed and played to perfection...by all.

It's original! How often can we say that in these days of prequels and sequels!

It's intelligent...it's everything that you'd ever want from a film...and more!
