Here as ever, Tucci is the most charming of performers. But something about the use of celestial metaphors and, more generally, the treatment of dementia seems heavy-handed. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make people cry, but calling down the stars while killing your leading man in awful increments are very blunt tools with which to do so, especially in a film so delicate, and you’re left feeling as much manipulated as moved.

Whatever warmth it leaves you with is rightly undercut with a plunging, unshakeable streak of sorrow.

Plenty to admire here, if only this tasteful tearjerker lived up to its title with a few more explosive fireworks instead of settling for timid twinkles, ending not with a bang but a whimper.

A serious endeavour, and a solemn, sad-hearted one.

A sincere and affecting portrait of two people stoically accepting mortality.

Each telling moment, whether big or small, connects unerringly.

So obviously structured that it often seems to be imposing meaning on its characters.
