Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Don Willmott Give a small group of excellent actors a tightly wound story, give them the freedom to improvise and run around a bit, and then stay out of their way. The results can be powerful Rated: 4/5 Nov 18, 2006 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Tells a complex story from three perspectives, and has something important to say about one of the UK's hottest topics. Rated: 4/5 Nov 2, 2006 Full Review Matthew Turner ViewLondon The film is brilliantly acted ... [Pauline] McLynn, in particular, is fantastic, whilst [Chloe] Serene (who's actually English) is something of a revelation. Rated: 4/5 Oct 28, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member very real, great acting, an unusual way of story telling, you get to see the point of view of each main character. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member A beautiful film. Stunningly-acted, gorgeously directed. Not easy to watch - it's so real. It puts you right into this group of people, for better, for worse, and it's an incredible experience. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review mark f Great low budget doc-movie with some good acting performances (apart from Rula Lenska over doing it) from some first time actors. Topical and intelligent. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I LIKED IT COZ SEEN FROM DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT IT WAZ REALISTIC AND GD ACTING VB Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Surprised by this one. Dogme 95 is a strange thing, but I was quite invested in the characters by the end. Someone said it was Dogme 95 meets Rashomon -- pretty much got it right there. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A great storyline and true to dogme95 but the script just doesnt seem to flow, maybe it was the actors though Paul McGann was very good. Very well directed in the way each viewpoint was completely different though telling the exact same story. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
