BY KSS nobody

A bittersweet movie with drama, romance, mystery, sadness, humour, literature and a variety of characters.


This movie took me in from the minute it finished until the very end. It is a love story and a mystery all rolled into one. Set in World War 2, the tragedy of war is apparent in this tale. Those left behind and those loved ones who were lost. Well cast. Great movie on a rainy day.

The Press Reviews

  • The pity is that the film is directed by Mike Newell, who made one of the greatest romantic movies, Four Weddings and a Funeral. Full Review

  • Every location in this irresistible romantic mystery is like a little mini-break for the soul, every costume and piece of set-dressing nibble-ably gorgeous, and every character a pleasure to keep company with, even the rotters. Full Review

  • There's enough drama and feel-good factor to leave you feeling, unlike sampling the potentially unctuous pastry of the title, more than satisfied. Full Review
