Brilliant British social drama
16 December 2002 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This English movie from 1997 tells the story of a few women in a Scottish ghetto and their all-day lives with sex, violence, unemployment, hopes, prostitution, drugs and despair. Driven by the need of money for their children and families, they loan some money by some brutal gangsters who start terrorizing and threatening them until the bitter end.

Directed by Rob Rohrer in the real suburbs of Glasgow, this movie speaks a realistic and dirty language that is supported by the intense acting of the beautiful actresses Shirley Henderson ("Harry Potter") and Sharon Small. The whole pacing and acting is nervous, despaired and always on the edge of an explosion... a brilliant contemporary social drama that has its roots in the British kitchen sink dramas of the fifties and sixties with the much more brutal language of the modern English cinema in the wake of "Trainspotting".
