Stunning film with the perfect combination of comedy, and drama with a little dash of romance
7 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I've never felt the need to write a comment for a film before but I really felt the need for Dead Fish. I can't believe it only scores a 5.8 on IMDb!

The film was brilliantly cast. Robert Carlyle is 'charming' as always, Billy Zane likewise. Not to mention Gary Oldman; the man who can act anything. But I think the real credit of this film goes to Elena Anaya, if it weren't for her brilliant performance the film would've fallen apart. The reviewers' empathy and feel for the film revolves around her changing romance with Abe (Andrew Lee Potts). She's a well respected Spanish actor who rarely ventures into English language films, and her beauty is a sight to behold! I would recommend everyone go and buy this film, it's possibly my favourite film of 2004!

Happy Viewing!
