It’s not often that a film comes along that blows you away. I thought I was going to see an over-long film, a meandering story about a small boy growing up, but I wasn’t prepared for this extraordinary piece of film-making. It brings out so many emotions in you as you watch it. And the biggest emotion of all is love. You really begin to love these characters, despite their flaws, and you want to stay with them. At least I did.
