I don't know why I hadn't heard or seen this gem before. Bought a copy for my mum and dad and they loved it too. Probably one of Anthony Hopkins' best performances in my opinion. It starts slowly but draws you in with humour and wit as the adventure gets underway.
Having read other reviews I decided to go for a size 10.5 (I'm usually a 10 and occasionally a 9.5) and found that they fit perfectly. I took them travelling and found them great in cities, mountains and going through muddy paths and swamp land. My feet were kept dry. They are very comfortable and I found that I didn't need to wear them in.
