Highly charming, funny and affecting, with a real sense of community and a super soundtrack.

It’s slightly glib, very glossy and over-extended at 154 minutes. But there’s an overriding sense that Canet knows this territory, and gets the best out of an excellent cast.

The actors acquit themselves well: convincing as long-time friends, delivering nuanced performances and setting a naturalistic tone.

If it all sounds a bit, well, dramatic, there's actually plenty of crisp comedy to temper the heavier stuff...

While sharp character observations keep the black comedy going strong, this is slightly less successful on the dramatic front.
