Surprisingly nice movie
4 January 2003 | by (Bergen, Norway) – See all my reviews

Before watching movies on the TV I often check IMDB to see if the movie is worth while watching.

I was not expecting too much when I saw the score of 4.8 at the time, but I read the reviews, and decided to watch it.

Movie summary

Rupert is an achieving and hard working business man, trampling on everyone at work, and without the capability to be nice to the one he loves. But from the beginning you get some indications that he is a nice man underneath.

Alison is a more relaxed and nice woman who somehow has fallen in love with Rupert.

Rupert decides to go to Barcelona to close a deal, on an important day for both Rupert and Alison. He gets stuck on his way back, and is stuck with "common people", and he is not able to hold his promises to Alison.

The rest of the story I leave to watchers of the movie, but the main story holds few surprises.

Very quickly you get to know the characters, some of the characters are maybe a little bit unrealistic, but you get the point for their roles. You also feel for all the main characters, and you do want to know how the film ends.

The film has a very "cheap" look, it is obvious that it doesn't have a high budget. The music score is maybe the worst part of the production, some of the dialouge is bad. But the most important parts of communications are ok, I particularly liked the character Chas (Ray Winstone), save the over-common clothing.

The film has a light mood to it, and is 100% not Hollywood. It has a resemblance to a farce on theater, but its story is serious enough.

I very much enjoyed the movie, and recommend it to everyone, it is probably not a movie for action-loving youth.

It was first after watching the movie, when I returned to IMDB to give my score of 7 that I discovered that the weighting system of IMDB has been very unfair to this movie. It has (at the time of writing) a score of 4.8, and a arithmetic mean of 7.3. I never hesitate to watch movies with a score around 7, but below 5 is not normally my movie.
