Totally lovable
11 April 2008 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Emma is a young woman living on her own on her pig farm. She's been living on her own for a long time and has grown mostly out of touch with the people in her town. Max is a chased city slicker that finds out he's got a terminal form of cancer and that wants to make the best out of the little time that remains him. Together they make the two lead characters in a film that is more or less a modern fairy tale about two people that run into each other on accident and that change each others lives in all possible ways and more.

As the film starts and gets through the necessary bits that introduce the characters it doesn't take long before it turns into a mild comedy. After this initial part it doesn't allow itself to sit back and relax and simply continues at a fairly high pace and as it rolls on it is impossible to NOT love the characters.

On me that was visible as a smile that was etched on my face from the word go. It started as a small one and became wider and wider as the film went on, even though there also was a tear and a gleam of sadness added to it. So, all in all, it's the perfect feel-good film.
