This movie rocked. I was taken back by this movie, and it was a welcome change to some of the things that people are now viewing and considering great movies. It was fantastic and i don't think that my words could ever do it justice. Everytime I notice it will be playing I make it a point to request those days off of work. The American version is fabulous and I watch it on a weekly basis however, I think the UK version was just unbelievable. Thank you
