15 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I came across this micro-budget British thriller via some online reviews which sung it's praise and decided to give it a shot. I didn't, however, expect it to be as good as it actually was.

I was very impressed with this film and quite moved. It doesn't look, sound or feel like low budget. The story is brilliant and kept me hooked all the way. Everything else is top notch as well; the acting, directing, cinematography, editing and music.

I think that some of the big Hollywood films could learn a thing or two from this film on how to tell a story.

Highly recommended!
