Storyline

Daniel receives a call from his elderly mother; his father Leonard, has got stuck on the sofa. He travels to their remote farm to discover that they have fallen over the edge of eccentricity into outright squalor. With a only few days free from work Daniel tries to help but his parents are unable to adapt to their new circumstances. Maria continues with her gloriously impractical style. Leonard uses his professional skills as psychiatrist to thwart Daniel. Maria dies suddenly. Leonard is forced to leave the family home. Daniel returns to London with a freedom that his parents had lost.

Beautiful, sensitive and strangely uplifting film with moments of rich dark comedy
12 March 2015 | by fletchkatieSee all my reviews

A film about dementia risks being bleak and depressing, but the rich, dark comedy and the beauty of the landscape, which forms an integral part of this film's fabric, make it strangely uplifting - a homage to the importance and joy of finding humour even in life's bleakest moments. This stunning film is an original, darkly comic portrait of an elderly couple and their son. The intimacy of the film and the sensitivity with which it deals with dementia and its fallout are testament to the deeply autobiographical nature of the film for its director and script-writer, Tom Browne. The setting, on the edge of the Lake District, in a ramshackle old house, perfectly draws together the threads of the story. Oscar-worthy performances (were this film ever to receive the plaudits it deserves) from the 3 main actors, some short, perfectly interposed cameos from mice and spectacular cinematography combine to make this the best film I have seen for some time. Watch and enjoy.
