excellent
16 September 2004 | by (Almaty, quazaqstan) – See all my reviews

"Tinsel Town" is one of the best series from BBC. I even could not believe that producers have dared to make such a controversial movie. The characters were portrayed so real that I wanted to kill Teresa for her attitude towards Paul. Of course, there are many invectives used and too many drugs exhibited but we must admit that this kind of people co-exist in our community. Moreover I do not feel embarrassed or humiliated watching them because of the admiration I can't help hiding. They are very strong people surviving lots of hazards and threats (like Lex or Ryan and Sweeney)and at the same time contriving to have fun. In spite of the dancy and light surface of the series as it may seem at the first sight the movie unfolds deep problems concerning human relationships, behavioral and psychological aspects of the new generation. As the main events take place at night the sensations that one may feel are attracting as well as risky as the night itself. The real spiritual thoughts and acts of human beings are dark, gloomy and if looking above at them are incomprehensible and noisy like some kind of tinsel. If you 15-30 we must appreciate it and feel compassion to Sandra, Jack, their parents and numerous friends.
