A mother and her daughter, a mother and her son, and a man living with one and attracted to the other. Miro, a teen from Sarajevo, lives near King's Cross with his mother; he's nimble, able to run across roofs, so his uncle hires him to break into office skylights, so the uncle can boost computers. Twice they steal from Will's architectural firm, so Will stakes it out at night. He follows Miro home and returns the next day and meets Miro's mother, Amira. At home, Will's relationship with Liv is strained - he feels outside Liv and her daughter Bea's circle. The stakeout and Amira's vulnerability are attractive alternatives to being at home. The police, too, watch Miro. Written by

Hi. I'm sorry.
You smell of perfume.
Well, I don't know how I do.
Nor do I.
I love you.
Is that an answer?
It's the truth. I feel as if I'm tapping on a window. You're somewhere behind the glass but you can't hear me. Even when you're angry, like now, it's like someone a long long way away is angry with me.

One of the most enjoyable films I have watched this year. Strong acting and direction with constant suspense almost to the very end. Juliet Binoche is outstanding , and Ray Winstone plays a strong support role as a sympathetic detective. Not every one rates Jude Law , but he is well cast in this , and I could not help think that there might be something semi autobiographical in the role that he plays. The views of London are good and there is plenty to think about in this movie as well , overcrowding , poverty , lack of opportunity for the young , personal relationships in the busy lives that we lead. to sum up , a movie that we all should go and see , relevant to our modern lives.
