  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


A multi-prizewinning film whose rich, complex plot reveals strands interwoven with poetic precision. The characters - family, neighbours, business associates, friends - are depicted (like their country) as positive, anxious, prosperous, insecure, and treated with deep humanism and touching humour. Do see it: it's a life-enhancing experience.

"Only rarely is a film this tender and observant about the ups and downs of daily existence" Roger Ebert


open_quote Intricately nuanced, lovingly crafted ... and decidedly wry in tone. close_quote David Wood, BBC Online

open_quote As rich and complex as a terrific novel, and you'll fall into the story just like you fall into a good book. close_quote Liz Braun, Toronto Sun

open_quote A magnificently acted, deeply affecting movie. There will not be many better this year close_quote Philip French, Observer.
