Ben is a very strange guy. Despite having what seems like a very crappy job holding sings on the streets of London, he seems incredibly happy and optimistic. Much of the film consists of him talking about how he loves the job and much is about how he loves his coworkers--even though they all seem sad, burnt out and pathetic. However, near the end there is a twist--and Ben has just gotten a promotion.
The film works simply because the guy who plays Ben (Jethro Skinner) seems so happy and likable. You can't help but root for him and get excited when his life seems to get better. Very well constructed, original and worth your time.
