Elephants, seahorses, geese and all other sentient lifeforms will indeed pray for mercy during this acutely dismal British romantic drama.
Derek Malcolm, This is London
The film's giant cliché about the natural life versus commercialism would be more effective if the girl skipping about like an overactive lamb was not such a pill.

Films about spiritual journeys should be celebrated, as they force us to explore deeper truths about our lives, but this one veers unevenly from comedy to drama to romance as it heads for a less-than-revelatory conclusion.
Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
This is not a film for anyone's showreel.
Rebecca Ellis, Little White Lies
So, do elephants pray? Who cares!
David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
Enjoyable but slight.
Paul M. Bradshaw, Total Film
