Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: At last! a film with a strong moral centre. This is an intelligent drama with a well-constructed script that offers some interesting insights into the nature of love. Love itself is explored via several varied types of relationships, which initially seem disparate, but come together in the end. The film also makes the point that people can be moral without being religious, and vice versa. Action junkies will be bored, but viewers wanting intelligent cinema will be thrilled.

Robert Haynes: Excellent little drama, whose narrative structure is one of pure genius on the part of the scriptwriters. An outstanding ensemble cast and top notch performances make this one intelligent movie-making at it's best - RUN !!! before it's off circuit

Carolyn Beyer: Beautiful in its realness, though heartbreaking. I thought about this movie for a good two days after seeing it. It really touched me.

Jacqui Adams: A wonderful movie about relationships and life, that has something for everyone, in all age groups.
