Believable hard-hitting drama with great performances.
16 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foreign John is an episode in the longish running series of short films by first time directors and writers, "Coming Up". The storyline involves John a man who works on a building site with Polish workers (hence the name Foreign John). John is trying to come to terms with the death of his recently deceased daughter. Obviously the tensions between his home life and his bereavement surface.

Coming Up films are hit and miss. This one is bang on the money. Good writing with believable dialogue and characters who could and I'm sure exist outside the film world. What makes this stand out is an absolute powerhouse of a performance by Johnny Harris who shows his anger, sadness and frustration perfectly without going over-the-top.

Highly Recommended. One of the best , if not the best of the 2009 season
