Two parallel worlds head for a collision as the clock ticks on towards Mischief Night when children are allowed to play tricks without fear of punishment.
31 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is such a brilliant film. Funny, fresh and honest. Set somewhere in northern england it charts the lives of two families, the Khans and the Crabtree's. Their worlds are divided by a Park set between the two streets they live in. But the script tackles some provocative issues that are very much relevant to a society where diversity is not always welcomed. It's witty, brilliantly acted and the cast are both professional and locally cast. Though you'd never know which is which. The film is directed with great assurance and control by Penny Woolcock who also wrote the script. You sense a real respect from her about the characters in her story and there is nothing patronising about the community she writes about. Just great humanity. There is nothing formulaic about it and it is always surprising in it's inventiveness. A terrific watch. Photography by Robbie Ryan (a talent to watch out for) is full of energy and flair.
