I had no idea as to what to expect with this film, and, although I was enjoying it, when the topic of the film was introduced, with a canine as centre stage, I was a little concerned! However, what a beautifully shot and well acted film this turned out to be! Peter O'Toole was astoundingly good, as were his fellow actors (Bryan Brown, Sam Neill, and the wonderful Judy Parfitt.) It's a bit of a random storyline, but the visual shots, interior and exterior, were so lovely. A very amusing film whilst moving me to tears at the end, which I was NOT expecting! In fact, I watched it through again straight afterwards, which I don't often do. Highly recommend this, it's different from the norm, and worth watching if only for Peter's acting.
