Mum and Dad Are Splitting Up

Dir/Producer Olly Lambert
BBC2 1 x 60 Mins
TX Sept 2013

"Terribly sad and deeply affecting. What could have been horribly exploitative becomes revealing and deeply involving, thanks to Lambert's canny combination of fearlessness and empathy." Time Out

"This shattering film is as simple as the title suggests: it merely points a camera at some teenagers and asks them about the breakdown of their parents' relationship. But what it reveals is the tremendous pain and desperation they felt and in many cases continue to feel." Sunday Times

"Olly Lambert is one of the most accomplished filmmakers working in television today. He makes films about subjects that matter; he films them with the eye of a cinematographer and he has the rare gift of getting people to open up in front of the camera with an honestly that is intensely moving. If he didn't make films, he would probably be a brilliant counsellor." The Times
