      Audience Member The synopsis of this film is completely wrong. It follows a man in a loveless marriage. His wife has been cheating on him the entire time they've been together. He finally finds a little happiness with an English woman but of course things go a little bit wrong. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member dark and complicated. i wonder why i end up watching such movies and then i even end up liking them. lol Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member I really don't know what I thought of it. It was a odd film. That's all I can say. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Mike M An ambitious, moody yet finally bathetic urban fable... It has first feature written all over it: the interiors are especially dingy, some of the supporting performances OTT, the time and money necessary for a final polish apparently unavailable. An undercurrent of weird suburban horror - exemplified by an out-of-nowhere revelation of incest - goes unexplored, and there's far too much talk about poo in the final reel for it to be taken entirely seriously: evidence of an immaturity that needs to be purged from the filmmaker's system. Still, if its reach exceeds its grasp, the film remains naggingly promising, both in its staging (the family always seem to be arranged in groups around the hero, like jackals waiting to pounce) and its seeking-out of atmospheric, off-the-map locations: the last horse market in London, say, or the towers themselves, whose interplay would make a fascinating short film in itself. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/22/09 Full Review Audience Member Tough social realism story based around the Asian community in North West London. The acting is down to earth and some of the storylines, although not fully explored remain deep. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Well crafted story and believable characters. Nothing but admiration for film makers like this who succeed in getting their vision on the big screen with little or no budget. There's talent here that deserves more opportunities to develop.
