Storyline

Whilst working as a CCTV operator in Glasgow's working-class Red Road estate, Jackie sees a face from the past, a face that she thought would no longer haunt her dreams. Keeping her distance, and with the use of her CCTV cameras, she follows the face and the man and she finally decides to confront him. It is here that past lives are once again entwined and reconciliations are aired. Written by Cinema_Fan

Trivia

Andrea Arnold conducted the casting with Morag McKinnon and Mikkel Nørgaard as all the actors would be reused in their films. See more »

Goofs

The video screens in the surveillance centre do not show the date and time, which would severely limit their usefulness as filmed evidence in real life. The date and time have clearly been disabled to avoid continuity errors in filming. The 'shadow' of the numbers is however visible. See more »

Moving.
2 November 2006 | by (Glasgow Scotland) – See all my reviews

An intimate and moving portrayal of characters both devastated and desperate. Performances are very subtle, yet brimming with emotion, so much so that some scenes are really quite uncomfortable to watch. Direction is also brilliant and the low budget restrictions really do not show. Also a very successful portrayal of the way many people in Glasgow live. I am very excited about the next two in the trilogy, as there were strong hints of very interesting stories accompanying the supporting characters. This film is so full of emotion that i just hope that people around the world don't come to think that Glasgow could be the most dreich place in the world.

Magnificent.
