Fabulous, wonderful and a new contender for one of my top ten films. It would have been perfect without the last 90 seconds or so, which I feel spoiled it a little. It would be interesting to read an analysis of this film as compared with It's a Wonderful Life (which IS one of my all-time favourites), especially the shift from a more social sense of worth to the contemporary psychological/self-help sense of worth. If I can't find the article I might end up writing it myself!
Four and three-quarters out of five.
