'Catch Me Daddy' [film review excerpt]

harrowing and powerful ... beautifully photographed by Robbie Ryan ... dark Grimm fairy tale images in the country dark of the Yorkshire Moors, in the unforgiving glare of a neon light ... an absolutely terrific central performance by Sameena Jabeen Ahmed ... expressionist imagery ... superb use of visuals and music together to create something which is almost fairy tale, almost magic realist ... strangely and tangibly transcendent ... kaleidoscopic collage of images come together takes the story out of something specific into something more universal, into something more mythical
