Serene and slow-moving, this turgid, unimpressive and inconsequential British period piece lacks any real drama.

A serene amble through an inoffensive landscape.
The film ends up verging on the inconsequential.
Tiny things happen oversignificantly in this indulgent British effort set in 1960s.
Shadows is an understated tale that could have used a little more fire but Simmons' presence helps to make it touching.
Shadows in the Sun unfurls as quietly as a mouse and could be accused of lacking urgency and bite. But it is well played.
A worthy entry on Jean Simmons' impressive CV - and hopefully not the last. Shadows In The Sun might not be Spartacus but it does have a charm of its own.
There's more drama in a breakfast cereal ad.
Heartfelt and well-behaved, this slight story of a divorced man attempting a reconciliation with his prickly mum is gracefully watchable, but resistant to embrace any actual drama.
A cosy Sunday-evening telly slot surely beckons.
A movie that has the same effect as a handful of Mogadon. It's so utterly dull they ought to give out prizes to anyone who keeps their eyes open to the end. Personally, I resorted to two carefully-placed matchsticks.
Time stands all but motionless. Wilby keeps plinking Träumerei on the Bechstein. And there is, no doubt, honey still for tea. Two stars for comfort, one star for originality.
It can be hard putting the boot into low-budget films that have clearly been a labour of love- but it's a lot easier when they're as cr*p as this.
Meditative family drama about healing old wounds as the family's matriarch is approaching her sunset. Jean Simmons, terribly feeble-she passed away less than a year after the film's release, gives a gentle but resolute performance. Nice that she could make her final bow above the title of a film that while it's not a masterpiece is a respectable showcase for her great often under-appreciated talent.
