Revolting tear-jerker about a child who dies (lingeringly but sweetly) of neglect after mum runs off and dad goes on an extended bat. A companion in awfulness to the same team's The Last Snows of Spring, it doesn't miss a manipulative trick, even ripping off the earlier film's bitter-sweet climax: there it was a last-ditch trip to the fairground, here it's the last-wish gratification of a trip to a circus.
