| What Hilde Wants, Hilde Gets
When a struggling and solitary cabinet maker learns of the death of his former lover, he is forced to reconsider his feelings and all he considers important. Is the dead man still manipulating all around him from beyond the grave?

Bitter-sweet exploration of the stages of grief, as two men, one willing, the other begrudging, accompany the deceased's ashes to scatter them on the French coast. Although the premise is simple, it is expertly handled by all concerned, led by two beautifully placed performances from and Finger and particularly Stokowski, who expertly crafts a man with such repressed and buried emotions that when the barriers are broken, the consequence is very real and very moving.

Perhaps the conclusion is a little too neat, but it's worth the ride
