Saw this at the London film festival and was totally blown away.
3 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Funny, moving and clever, this treatise of working class life as it really is i.e told by the people who actually live it, is such a breath of fresh air. The story comes together so well at the end and just leaves you feeling so uplifted - it@s a million miles from the way this government talks about Muslims, youth culture and drugs - they don't shy away from letting you know things are bad but somehow you just feel that if you ignore the spin and just get on with the fibre of life itself you'll get through and they do this by letting the comedy build and not filling it with stupid "witty" one-liners, in other words you really care about the people who inhabit this film. And as for that Ramon Tickaram - he is just so gorgeous.
