A deeply moving film,

This review is from: And When Did You Last See Your Father? [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this at the cinema and it was all I could do not to break down in tears. Quiet sobbing is the English way!
As someone who lost a parent to cancer not that long ago I was particularly moved by the film - a very realistic portrait of death and grieving. Unlike many American films this felt very, very realistic and not sugar coated sentimentality.
Some people will hate it's Englishness and others will perhaps find it too dark. Personally I thought it was a wonderful film but a couple of boxes of Kleenex will be necessary!
