It's a good feeling when you 'discover' a great film. Especially one that due to the nature of it's budget and distribution, only you and a handful of other lucky people will ever see. Those were my thoughts after watching 'Small Time'. Costing only a couple of grand to make, and filmed on the streets of Nottingham, it follows the daily ups and downs, mainly downs, of a group of friends scraping a day-by-day living by ducking and diving and stealing anything to hand. The story leads to a grand finale, but it's the interaction and the banter between the characters that makes this film such a fun ride, they are totally believeable. The cast are mainly unknowns, but thats what probably makes the chemistry work. The music is good as well, two accoustic guitar tunes near the middle of the film are fantastic, they sum up totally how the characters are really feeling. Buy it and cherish it, Hollywood can keep all it's 'eye candy', this is proper film making.
