The father-son bond dominates this bittersweet tale, which is not only impeccably played by a fine cast, but also beautifully designed.

Quietly profound, very moving, very engaging and made me feel like I was in a kind of magical bubble and when cinema works at it best, that's what it does.

The filmmakers make the most of a tiny budget here.
