A film about people making a film about a senseless murder sounds complicated, but it isn't. Using documentary and fantasy sequences along with the basic premise, it just works. The editing and cinematography create a visual treat that challenges you with great reward, the soundtrack complements the visuals so well and Tilda is her usual perfect self. The story is heartbreaking and handled with complete respect and honour for the man and his family. If you think The Princess Bride is the best film ever you won't like it, but then you don't deserve something as interesting and beautiful as this. I admit, it made me cry.
