Amy Reviews

[Tass] accents the easy bathos of David Parker's script.

This well-meaning film is really just another one-hanky slum fairy tale -- this time with an Aussie accent.

Nowhere near as good as Tass and Parker's best film, the delightful Malcolm.

Ultimately undone by a less-than-credible, often cloying screenplay marked by underdeveloped characters and contrived situations.

A crowd-charming contemporary fable with more than a touch of Dickens in its go-for-broke heart.

Provides satisfactions that must be balanced against its flaws.

It's far too easy to hold a grudge against Nadia Tass's stultifying Amy, which would set a new bar for mawkish exploitation of a child's suffering if its every situation and character weren't so laughably bogus.

Punchy, vital entertainment that gives mother and daughter equal importance and whose story unfolds in an engaging and imaginative context.
