The scene at a dinner party in which Spall's Singe likens the pain of bereavement to struggling against the sea's undertow will knock you off your feet.

It's a tough watch but a powerful one, and beautifully acted not just by Fox and Spall but by William and Matthew Stagg, as their young sons. Well done, boys.

Even before the opening credits it is tugging on the heartstrings as if Quasimodo were at the other end, and the fierce pressure on the tear ducts never lets up, which is why I found myself resisting.

It's warm to the touch, slightly soft in the middle.

The film is an incoherent mess that may prove baffling to those unfamiliar with the source.

Good as Emilia Fox is ... it's Spall's bluff charm and unexpected resourcefulness that keeps the film as rooted in reality as cinematographer Eben Bolter's seascapes.
