Mr. and Mrs. Peach's favourite neighbours emigrate to Australia, leaving the grieving Peach's anxiously twitching the net curtains of their suburban cul-de-sac home waiting to see who will be moving in next door.

As a mutual hatred for each other develops, the neighbours begin an intensifying bloody feud which climaxes in a bitter ending. Written by Anonymous

Excellent little movie
5 December 2000 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

After the terminally dull spate of cockney crime capers, it is a relief to see a British film that is more substance than style.

Nasty Neighbours was originally a hit play and surprisingly Isitt manages to disguise its theatrical origins quite well. I would be interested to see what she manages to achieve with an original screenplay and full funding.

Although there are a couple of plotting decisions I disagree with there was nothing that distracted from an always entertaining film.

My only problem with the movie is that although it has funding from Birmingham City council and West Midlands Arts it could be set anywhere. The area of Birmingham, it's set in is the most densely wooded in Europe, Birmingham as a whole has more trees and parks than any other city in Europe.

Even when one of the characters visits one of the most glorious buildings in Birmingham, my local Victorian swimming baths, the angle Isitt uses means we don't see the building itself. I don't expect a tourist video just a little something to counter the ignorant jibes of those who don't know the beautiful city of Birmingham.
