A breathtaking film, 4 July 2012
9/10

From the very beginning of the film, I got hooked by the beautiful cinematography and style, by the choice of characters and the accuracy of the details and by the visual storytelling that reminded me again and again why I fell in love with cinema in the first place.

The subject treated in this movie may not be something new for the viewers but what I am certain of is that director "Ruffus Norris" really has a great vision and an amazing ability to capture the audience's complete attention every single second of the film, allowing the movie to drive them.

You'll definitely enjoy watching this movie and I assure you, it will be quite an experience. Few movies have succeeded in capturing me to the last frame but Broken is one of them, again, a courtesy of the amazing cinema of England.

The movie is based on the concept of causes and consequences that lead to certain actions and results that may be good or bad depending on the situation. It is set in a small neighborhood where the stories of the characters living there intertwine in a beautiful way.

It is a story about the loss of innocence, childhood, unfortunate events and people trying to do "good", and forced to do "bad".

Enough said, this film is definitely a must-watch this year.

An excellent movie, 30 November 2011
9/10

This was the first time i watch a movie coming from Cyprus, and I must say it is a really good one. It is a story about circumstances and events that might happen to each and everyone of us. It is treated in a mature and convincing way that leaves you unable to criticize. This movie follows the story of a man who decides to come back to his homeland and his efforts to build his life again, surrounded by characters whom everyone of them has a story of his own, and all representing similar people that we all meet in our life. Fish n' chips is a drama, a comedy, a coming of age movie. It is a mix of several genres and you'll definitely be touched by the story about life, love, country, destiny and how you'll survive in this tough and always changing world.
