      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A film that tackles something as simple as everyday life and succeeds beatifully. The witty script and clever direction keep the film flowing, while the superb acting keeps it alive. It doesn't aim for the sky and for that reason it hits its mark.

      John A Layered multi-character study is bustling and occasionally immersive due to the distinct style of cinematography Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Michael Winterbottom's slice-of-life drama is well-acted but rambling and ineffective. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a fairly interesting watch. Throughout I began to wonder what kind of camera they used to film it because it looked a little grainy and very white washed feeling. I didn't mind the way it looked. The music really tied the movie together, made it a good listening experience. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review dave j Wednesday, November 14, 2012 (1999) Wonderland DRAMA Made in the same tradition as one could expect from a Mike Leigh film where the story is improvised by it's leads using an actual setting showcasing problems involving the middle class. In this case, a group of people who have some connection with the other, we don't know how nor understand in what way they're relevent until the very end. Very 'subtle' and raw which makes it more appealing since all of them are acting without any make up on nor are they on any Hollywood set. Everything done in this film takes place on the some of the seediest streets of London. What one can expect from this film starts off with a young average lady looking for love by placing a lovelorn ad, another story dealt with first time parents as a couple, a mother having to put up with a neigbors barking dog everyday and all night, and an older son total withdraw from his father made in a docu-drama style. All I can say is that theirs something appealing about watching actors without any makeup on, which as a result make their personas to become authetic and relatable without any high expectations coping with actual locations without it being a stage. If it comes to "neo-realist" this happens to be like one of them in these current times and think that it's very hard to do. 3 out of 4 stars Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member London has never been more beautiful and yet rugged on films. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member this is a good movie, but another depressing movie.... the part where she poisoned the dog made me feel sick Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
