I caught a viewing of this film on television and was totally enraptured by it. It is an semi-autobiographical account of Richard E Grants childhood in Africa and it is a magical beautiful film.
I have to reiterate, I loved this film. It was written and directed by Richard E Grant and is a masterly film directing debut. Buy it, watch it, please, please read the book!! Then see the film again. Really worth at least a second viewing.
