"23 Walks" is a heart-warming comedy-drama about finding love later in life. Dave (Dave Johns) and Fern (Alison Steadman), two older strangers, have been bruised by their individual circumstance.

But Dave and Fern haven't been completely honest with one another and their future together may be threatened by the secrets they have withheld.

Beautiful and moving
- 23 Walks review by giantrolo
Love, love, loved this film! The interplay between the human and canine characters was so well done, and it was such a lovely story. I can't hesitate to recommend this hugely! Fantastic performances from Alison Steadman (Gavin's mum in Gavin and Stacey) and Dave Johns (I, Daniel Blake). BRILLIANT!

Yes and No
- 23 Walks review by CS
Undecided about this movie. Not a strong cast nor story line come to that, but passed the time - quite ordinary I would say. Given 3 stars as it was'nt a film I did'nt like, but it drifted along and was waiting for some action. It did'nt come unfortunately. Not memorable and will be easy forgotten.

A gentle, undemanding tale
- 23 Walks review by TE
A quietly watchable tale of late-life romance, a cautiously stuttering relationship that develops from a dog walking encounter.
Alison Steadman is reliably good as Fern, whilst Dave Johns does a rather pallid version of his character in the excellent 'I Daniel Blake'. Dave does, however, have the much nicer dog out of the two canine protagonists.
Being of a similar age to the main characters, I found the storyline interesting enough to last the course, but the main problem is with the script. The script is plodding and at times unintentionally funny, especially when the relationship gets physical. Both actors (and both dogs) deserve better.
