a simple and beautiful story
This is the definition of a beautiful world cinema title - a poignant but simple story, effortlessly acted and very believable. Cyril is a troubled character but thankfully not the stereotypically damaged beyond help child we often see in these types of storylines. Instead the focus is on hope, and more importantly the hope and good that Samantha, the hairdresser who fosters Cyril on weekends, sees in him.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, one of the best films I've seen so far this year.
