The Review: I went into the screening with very high expectations having seen countless glowing reports for this film. Perhaps that’s why I came away feeling slightly dissatisfied.
The film was shot over twelve years which provides the impact. Seeing a brother and sister grow up, their parents age and the world around them all change is profoundly moving to an extent.
I say ‘to an extent’ because not much happens apart from everyone growing older! They all face their own trials and the acting is excellent but I longed for a meatier story to support this fine idea for a film.
The Verdict: Worth seeing but don't expect to be blown away.
