This is a great British thriller. It follows a Polish immigrant Adam coming over to London to find his older brother who left home years before and is now found to be at the head of some dodgy construction projects and illegal immigrations rackets. Though initially looking rosy for Adam as he spends some time with his brother again and meets a girl it quickly turns more sour and events power the film to a thrilling conclusion as Adam is forced to make one of the biggest decisions of his life. The film is very realistic in its look and acting and there's some great shots showing the darker side of London. In many ways it is in the same vein of films as Stephen Frear's Dirty Pretty Things and David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises in this setting and feel and it is well worth investigating.
