At last a film with warmth!!
11 April 2004 | by (amsterdam via uk) – See all my reviews

This film is a kind of ensemble piece but not in that talking loud verbal battles in one room kind of way. It's rather that here are distinctive personalities instead of everyone being cool (or being the ones the cool ones pick on) as is the way in so many films. These characters are very fallable. There's who Frank still lives with his Mum on the dole and when she finally throws him out, the sons at his boarding house, one who'se life was wrecked in a violent attack and the other who, with little conception of reality, was too scared to anything when it happened. It's not heavy though, but very warm and funny, just stripped of the glamour and glitz of most films out there. It turns into a sort of thriller and doesn't fall flat as these films can that start by observing with humour then try to hold onto the humour while adding suspense. Alongside Gregory's Two Girls and Stiff Upper Lips, another very enjoyable, well-made British comedy.
