**** David Parkinson, Empire: “This intimate, but unflinching account of the travails of a North Pennine farming family captures the beauty of the changing seasons, while deftly conveying the graft involved in rearing sheep and cattle and the grimier realities of the rural economy“.

Film Review by Emmy Award-winning Director Patrick Collerton who made The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off:

“This is a beautiful, timeless, unhurried, affectionate film. Magali has a painterly eye and instinct for the poetic in her depiction of a North Eastern farming family through the seasons”.

Louise Osmond, Director of Documentary ‘Dark Horse’ which won the Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival said:

“I just loved it. Beautifully observed, warm, gently funny, it was up there with my two all time favourites – Quattro Volte and Modern Life”.
