| A most pleasant surprise!
I decided to watch this film when I read a summary describing it as a "black comedy starring Dawn French." As I like black comedies and enjoyed Dawn French in "The Vicar Of Dibley", I found myself watching it. What I saw was much better than I had ever expected.

Though Dawn French has a small role, James Fleet (whom I recognised as Hugo from "The Vicar Of Dibley") was astounding as the eccentric farmer whose mother has died. He is humorous in a deranged sort of way but his sensitivity is also explored so we, as viewers, feel sympathy for him. What is particularly impressive is the versatility of his acting, I will certainly look out for his films in the future.

Despite this being described as a black comedy, it is more accurate to say that it is a dramatic piece based on a foundation of comedy. I found it an original film and was surprised I had not heard of it before. In many ways, it is much better than the usual blockbuster comedies which get lots of press attention. If you like Richard Curtis' work, you should find this right up your street. If you're not sure about it, it can't hurt to give it a go. I definitely don't regret it.
