Life Goes On (12A)


The critical consensus

The acting isn't always up to scratch but Datta's highbrow approach to grief makes for cerebral viewing and there's plenty of pathos too. A touching, thoughtful film.

***(*)(*)Patrick Peters, Empire Online, 07/03/2011

This golden light-bathed melodrama from UK-based director Sangeeta Datta holds back no sentimental flourishes.

**(*)(*)(*)Carmen Gray, Total Film, 07/03/2011

he acting is so stiff and self-conscious that one is half-tempted to file the dead mum as the tale's most convincing presence.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Xan Brooks, The Guardian, 10/03/2011

This likable if more than a trifle laboured Indian movie reworks King Lear in present-day London.
