A fine portrait of unfortunate people hoping for love
15 January 2000 | by etttSee all my reviews

When zapping along the TV-channels, I happened to see the beginning of this series (broadcasted here as one long movie). It caught my attention, I returned to it and ended up watching only this movie. Although the beginning seemed to point to a rather trite and familiar kind of tear-jerking story, in my opinion the movie on the whole gives a fine portrait of unfortunate people hoping for love, and the difficulties and emotions they meet and experience. The British-realistic style of filming was quite fitting; the beauty lies not in the pictures but in what is being portrayed, and the subtle and convincing acting of the leading actors perfectly complements this style. The story, although satisfying, may lack development and surprise, but as a whole the movie is a refreshing interval between all the glib and sophisticated Hollywood productions on TV these days.
