powerful but problematic
20 March 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

very powerful, and pretty impressive as a hybrid of British art- house and thriller conventions, even if these two strands of its makeup never sit entirely comfortably against each other. there's little that hasn't been seen in the films of other European socio-realist directors (i kept thinking of Ulrich seidl, Clio Bernard and Brno Dumont as well as tiny bit of ken loach, though this has little of loach's generosity or compassion) but the Wolfe's obviously know a thing or two about gut-piercing drama, they just stick too conveniently to the surface of the subject they are focusing on. it feels a little too easy to take such a sensitive subject and treat it merely as thriller fodder. yes it has some sensitive scenes, and the last scene is almost unbearable to watch (i left feeling scarred) but it is also just reveling in ethnic stereotypes in how there is not one redeemable Asian man on screen. so while you could say there are no redeeming men of any background on screen (or that it is not the job of every film to deal with this, but i would say for a film tackling this subject, and a group who are routinely represented poorly in the mainstream, it is an important detail, esp when there have been very few films dealing with these themes - catch me daddy seems close to becoming exploitation, albeit dressed up in art-house clothing), the older white bounty hunter at least appears to care somewhat, as does the white boyfriend. does it drive home the absolute horror of the situation as it should? yes. but it also relishes that horror a little too uneasily/problematically. it is essentially just reinforcing the audience's preconceived notions of Pakistani/south Asian communities, with Asian men as brutes, white men as saviours, Asian girls as victims, with little to challenge or colour around that - so while the film might appear superficially bold, its also somewhat thin on understanding its subject beyond very basic circumstances. but i imagine the Wolfe's would make good British genre movie makers, which the UK could probably do with more of. they're great filmmakers, I'm just not sure if they are particularly mature as storytellers.
