This is a MUST SEE movie
9 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It is not often I would give a movie 10 out of 10 but this one really deserves the rating.

A movie that seemingly starts off as a rather ordinary piece of work becomes a truly fascinating insight into an aspect of life we all miss because it occurs under our noses.

An ordinary man is not an ordinary man at all. He is a very dedicated public servant attending to an aspect of life that we are seldom aware of, always sympathetic toward when it is brought to our attention, but generally ignored on the whole.

This movie totally gripped me. It fascinated me in terms of what some people do to keep our lives orderly and it raised my feelings of compassion toward the "faceless" people doing seemingly ordinary housekeeping jobs.

The development of the principal character, the job, and also the extent to which many, many other "faceless" or unseen people become involved was a masterpiece of scripting and acting.

Underneath all this was a soundtrack to die for. Probably not a soundtrack you would buy to listen to, but one that matched the movie and its moods at a level seldom found in any cinematic offering.

The story development and the ending were tremendous and the surprise ending (which is not a surprise if you pay attention to all the nuances and subtleties of the script and acting) blew me away.

I cannot recommend this movie highly enough.
