Sometimes it seems the only place to find a decent film to watch is in the past or in the ‘search lights’. This is a gem of a film, dark humour, light humour, serious issues, moments of levity and blackness. This little film has it all. If you really want to see something original that sparkles with excellence in almost aspect this is for you. Watch it or you are missing out.
