The best things in life are free.
30 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A reminder that you don't need big budgets, special effects and Oscars to have a truly fabulous film.

Funny, silly, and touching in equal measure this is one of those films where you just don't know why you like it, but you do.

The characters are plausible and likable, the story lines veer from the ridiculous to the heart wrenchingly plausible and the simplicity allows the focus to remain on the hub of the plot, the inter relationship of normal people, warts and all. It isn't always pretty, it isn't always kind but it is unavoidably real. Its life.

A film that you leave feeling content and happy, proud to be not just a Tootonian, not just a Londoner, but a human being.

A triumph.
