‘ A delicate, beautifully calibrated film. ‘ Coky Giedroyc

‘ There is much to love about every aspect of Barraclough’s observation on love, loss and fleeting moments of illusory bliss. The whole thing plays out like someone’s idealised, glimmering memories from years ago, the actual event of which was less than poetic.’ 4.2/5 Indie Shorts Mag
