Bapteme - my first really moving film experience
2 April 2006 | by jhgoudieSee all my reviews

We were taken on a school outing to see this film 16 years ago and it had a really lasting effect on me. I have searched for this film - I would love to see it again - as I remember it is the most wonderful and heart-wrenching story of life and love that I had ever seen before. Now, because I have not seen it since, and with older eyes, I may have an altogether different opinion - but my frustration is not being able to get my hands on a copy!! It was a wonderful experience - we were in Warwick Arts Centre and the producer and leading lady were there to give us a talk about it afterwards. I still have my ticket signed by both of them - the story was so powerful I cried when I was explaining it to my mum the next day!! (What an emotional teenager I must have been!)
