      Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard Director and writer Rémi Bezançon has a view of family life at odds with that of our own curmudgeon Philip Larkin, and the final reel proves the point. Rated: 3/5 Nov 27, 2009 Full Review Wendy Ide Times (UK) While it's competently put together, you can't help wondering what the point is. Rated: 2/5 Nov 20, 2009 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Reasonable enough, but underpowered. Rated: 2/5 Nov 20, 2009 Full Review Andrew L. Urban Urban Cinefile An ode to parenting, taken at a mature and sophisticated level. The pains and joys are represented well, without fanfare or histrionics Jul 31, 2010 Full Review Louise Keller Urban Cinefile This is a vibrant film filled with truths of everyday life, when communication, misunderstandings, circumstances and emotions mesh together like a single heartbeat Jul 31, 2010 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) A funny, deeply affecting and often painfully truthful movie about families, parenthood, growing up, growing old and dying, devoid of sentimentality.
