Heart-warming film that wears it rough edges on its sleeve
28 March 2008 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

This is a heart-warming film. It's low budget and it shows its rough edges, but its warm spirit comes through if you give it a chance.

It's a family film and centres on a man chasing his dream and how his family have to put up with it. It's a family film and it's set in a real London.

It kept a smile on my face the whole time. It's such a feel good film. It's a very English comedy. It's full of interesting, quirky characters and it deals with its story with tongue-in-cheek wit. Alfie is a pathetic father but you warm to him as the story progresses.

It's definitely not a perfect film, but it's a refreshing break from the superficial, sickly-sweet American stodge you see every week at the cinema. It's a fun, rough slice of British life with plenty of charm.
