Some members' comments:
4 As Well filmed but heart wrenching!*** Wonderful acting but the fragmentation was difficult to live with.*** *****9 Bs Sophie’s acting superb!*** Our sound system couldn’t cope.*** Great camera work.*** An intriguing film with a sinister edge. What was his trauma?*** Not sure I understood it all.*** Nothing wrong with a Scottish accent.*** Excellent acting.*** Better second time around.*** Still processing! *** Amazing performance from the young girl.*** Dialogue could be clearer. Lovely story line.*** Home movie elements were clunky - but Paul Lescal was a triumph - ditto the daughter.*** Would have given an A if I could have heard it.*** Very good little actress.*** *****2 D’s Too slow. Last 20 mins would have covered it.*** 3 Es Could have been D if the words were audible.*** Too many camera gimmicks - to what purpose?*** Not worth commenting.***
