Matt Richards's rating of the film Bliss

Not nearly as impressive as Cherry Blossoms, Bliss does however explore some interesting territory within the realm of a young couple seeking to transcend the wound of their individual pasts. It's a touch clichéd in design and may have worked better without the defence lawyer angle but there are some fantastic, honest moments and Alba Rohrwacher does a superb job. 3 stars
