| Understated Romance, Sentimental/Nostalgia Feel
This film won't please everyone (my partner thought it was dull and too subtle), but if you have a nostalgic feel about a small, working-class English community in the 1950s and the quiet life combined with a subtle story about two women who fall for each other, you will truly love it.

The score is dreamy and gives the film a feel for a long lost lifetime, the actors do a great job in their roles, and this film is very European in the sense that there's little dialogue and a lot of scenes of daily life and small moments. The romance between the two women is a bit too subtle at times (hence dropping a star), as it would have been nice to see a little more physical closeness, but the plot makes up for it by avoiding the pitfalls of frustrating cliches. The women gaze a little too long, smile a little bigger, and seem a little nervous around each other, which adds to the charm and romance.

This film is obscure and not well-known, but worth your time if you appreciate subtlety, feel sentimental about 1950s working class England, and dare I say, value a favorable ending!
