"Where There’s Smoke, is heartbreakingly beautiful."
(Jennifer Gleadell, NVA)

"This film narrates something huge, yet is so subtle and clever in the handling; think  tension and pregnant pauses akin to American Beauty but without the soundtrack,  combined with the stunning Suffolk seascapes and their cold greys and blues."
(Jennifer Gleadell, NVA)
