I saw this film at the cinema recently and thoroughly recommend it - but it won't be to everyone's taste.

The storyline is gripping, and leaves you guessing until the very end, and then the whole film makes sense and you understand why Jackie (played with startling honesty and skill by Kate Dickie) behaves they way she does - sort of; certainly you end up feeling gut-wrenching sympathy for her. I won't give the story away, and hope none of the future reviewers do either.

This film makes you feel uncomfortable all the way through, like you are an imposter; spying on the characters. I never been made to feel like that by a film before, and I was on the edge of my seat,… Read more

My God, how/why was this film released? The storyline is dreadful. The acting is worse (regardless of whether they are 'unknown' or not - there are plenty of 'unknowners' who are truly magnificant). Do not bother wasting either your money or time watching this film, I'm thankful I only rented it.

I love this animation (and yet I cannot abide The Office and have never heard of Curb Your Enthusiasm).

It is quirky, original, dark, witty and very very clever. I was blown away when I first saw it; recorded from the TV one christmas but the tape ran out before the end. I couldn't wait for an opportunity to see it again, and wasn't disappointed. There isn't much dialogue but there doesn't need to be. The characters are wonderfully stylised and the dog is a masterpiece of animated observation.

Watch it, most definately, and hopefully you won't be disappointed. It seems it is not to everyone's taste but wouldn't life be boring if we all liked the same things?
