Amy Hardie’s moving and affectionate portrayal of both patients and staff at the Strathcarron Hospice in Scotland gives a unique insight into how we as humans deal with the finality of life. Encouraged by nurse Mandy Malcomson, the patients and staff use singing as therapy, creating a positive environment as they come to terms with their fate. Hardie’s skill as a director is seen in her ability to balance the light-heartedness with the quiet intimacy, ultimately leading to a beautiful and respectful documentary.
