Never seen a move boring movie
This has to be without a doubt the most boring movie ever. Digging your eye-balls out with a blunt garden instrument is preferable to watching this movie.

A humane, intelligent British film
This is one of the best British films I've seen in the last few years. Great acting, great music, and the rural East Anglian setting is a nice change from the gritty urban backdrop of most modern Brit flicks. The three-part structure is clever without being too intrusive. Seeing the same story from different points of view helps you understand several of the characters who seem selfish or unsympathetic at first. You get to see their vulnerability and appreciate their'good side' - it's a very humane film. The overall mood is a bit sad and wistful but it's also emotionally uplifting and even has a few jokes in it. Highly recommended.

Intelligent, subtle and true to life.
How refreshing to see a film that punches way above its budgetary weight, making a mockery of big budget star driven and cloying Hollywood fayre.

As anyone who watches the "extras" contained in the DVD package will discover, the guts of the film draw on the talents and commitment of a fine ensemble of British actors. There is no sense of the directors ramming a story / life view down your throat and the way in which it reflects real life, with a never ending stream of interlocking events and perspectives is seamless.

Some fine acting -- people won't be surprised to know that Bill Nighy is magnificent, and that Douglas Henshall and Josephine Butler have an effortless natural charisma that fills the screen.

It's a film that will reward watching repeatedly to fully capture the matrix of emotions and events, so brilliantly captured in the film score. A film for all seasons and stages of life.
