Audience Reviews for A Short Stay In Switzerland

Its gratifying to see that some parts of the world permit the portrayal of an intelligent person's choice to forego the agony of a prolonged death in the clutches of a cruel disease. A brilliant performance by Julie Walters as the real-life central character Anne Turner. (Just to piss off the born-agains a little more, there's a gay marriage near the end.)
