Mesmerising in its simplicity, a respite in a world of noise and chaos was this beautiful and deeply moving story of a place in this world found. Sometimes little said is all that’s needed, perhaps a lesson for us all.

Very emotional. Warming One is DAD one is A DAD. Healing for both girl and the foster family. They both learn a lot. Hopefully for a more positive future.

Excellent film - very well made. Deserves an Oscar!

Could have done with some subtitles at the beginning but the fact everyone around me was in tears at the end says it all.

Beautiful story. Mixture of language didn't matter. Everybody cried. Well done.

Very beautiful film! Says it all, family life in a deprived area. We are lucky!

This film is so poignant - we all wanted her to have a happy ending but reality was fast approaching. Sweet, bitter, sweet, sad, loving.
5
Loved it, very emotional and I don't think there was a dry eye in the entire audience.
5
Beautiful cinematography. Issue of nature & nurture - best parenting explored powerfully - hope though for child. Irish language added depth to the film.
5
A very touching, poignant film. Too many people have indeed missed the opportunity to say nothing in life, at times, and lost much by it! Love and loss, kindness and understanding. All this stuff of life but agony too. Well chosen selectors!
5
A beautifully made film - extremely moving. Very sensitively written. Excellent acting especially from the child. What some children go through often without means of expression or the ability to change their lives.
5
Tense and touching. Did not want that ending.
