A new way of looking at life

You only have to look at the cast to realise you are in for a treat; add in the location and cinematographic magic is assured. At least I thought so.

There are different ways of looking at life, particularly in older age. And it makes such a difference when the young people around you call you “Auntie” or “Uncle’ without a trace of irony. ¬†At first glance the film seemed like a comment on the outsourcing of elderly care, however, the incidental philosophising and longing for just one last experience, assured a wider canvas.

This dvd is definitely a keeper: one to bring out on grey, dismal, wintry days. And a film to guarantee that you are left with a smile on your face. The only reason it didn’t get a 10 out of 10 is that it failed to escape the odd cliche. So I give it a 9. What do you think?
