| It's a nice music video about the wife and mother gone too soon… going on for 102 minutes
It's a pretty nice music video about remembering the wife and mother gone too soon… only it's going on for 102 minutes.

I'm sure there are some who would like this mushy kind of thing – „The Notebook" crowd, perhaps? – but I am not one of them. I really am a wrong person to review this.

It was a small challenge to continue watching after the first second or so. I just knew how it all would play out from the opening scene, and it only went more boring from there.

There is no proper story to speak of, mostly vignettes about the happy past. Pretty pictures and inspiring music, just like scraps from a "spiritual" friend's Facebook account.

Without proper story, the overall sweetness is hard to stomach for so long. Everybody is so nice and always has time and patience for everybody else. No authenticity, no real emotions, only saccharine.

Rafe Spall is great as the grieving husband and father, others are good too.

Seriously, watch the trailer first and if you liked it and are ready to see the extended 102 minute version, then check out the movie.

Based on the true story and best-selling book by one St John Greene, „Mum's List" will hit cinemas a week before Mothers Day.

IMDb says It has been released previously only in the UK and Ireland last November, which turned out to be much less smooth move, resulting this cancer weepie disappearing without a trace.
