more than just a Polish My Left foot - Life Feels Good review by AM

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2017

The parallels are obvious. Both films tell the story of someone with cerebral palsy, over a number of years, both with a basis in fact. But life Feels Good is far more that just a Polish retread of My Left Foot.

I'm trying to avoid spoilers here. Suffice to say that while My Left Foot dealt with the story of someone dealing with cerebral palsy, Life Feels Good deals with someone whose cerebral palsy leads to a further misdiagnosis. The resulting story is brilliantly acted, sensitively acted, with pathos, emotion and humour. It's an excellent film which deserves a far larger audience.

ps - only in the credits did I realise this was based on one singular true story, until then I assumed it was drawn from a collaboration of events. This is partly because I now expect film biopics to start by telling you this is what they are. That it is all true only enhances an wonderful film
