I love movies, all kinds, too many to mention, but this would have to come close to the top of the list of unmissables. I read reviews and put off going for ages as I imagined I knew what it would be like, and I was very wrong. A straightforward story of a bunch of people making changes in their life for a number of different reasons becomes a deep, personal, emotionally involving journey that sees every member of the cast embodying their roles so fully that it's as though they had never played anything but these particular characters. To balance out the pathos, there are many many moments of humour, both wry and overt, in particular the hotel owner, who never quite overacts but instead plays to perfection his bold and colourful part, and this mood was woven so cleverly throughout that it was impossible to dwell for too long on the solemn side. All in all, a truly wonderful film with a thankfully happy, beautifully satisfying ending.
