" I loved the simplicity, clarity and precision of the story, how it fitted with the music and images. I also loved the truth of the piece and how it was so from the heart yet not sentimental. Because of this, the life o f Mark's father made me think of my own family, and I'm sure everyone was remembering those loved and lost. "
