By Frelle Petersen

Official Selection at the 70th San Sebastián Film Festival

'It’s a lovely, if elegantly unshowy, package, with performances which work as a true ensemble. Perhaps it’s the endless cups of coffee, the constant talk of cake, but Forever hugs the audience in for a warm familial embrace before splitting into a fractured mirror of before and after.'
