I went along to see the film with my husband in Cardiff yesterday. It was my estranged mother’s funeral at the same time the film was being shown. I cried for several reasons while watching this beautifully animated film. The details in the film were something I’ve never seen before, the details in the drawings, the movement, just mind blowing. The actors were absolutely brilliant, I don’t think a better cast for the voices of the characters could have been found, and Paul McCartney’s song, perfect. If this animation doesn’t win several awards, then the world’s gone mad, I’ll eat my hat, and yours! I hope it gets released on DVD, I’d watch it over and over. Go and see it, I urge you. You could hear a pin drop in the cinema at the tender moments, which there are many. Huge congratulations to everyone involved in the making of this, and to Raymond Briggs, thank you for writing the book in the first place. I feel all cried out, but it was worth it.

Thank you so much Roger, I’ll treat myself to a late Christmas present then. Something to look forward to.
