Funding bodies, are they blind?
22 January 2007 | by DannypantoSee all my reviews

It amazes me how this film could get any funding (from Film Four and The Film Council) and distribution (I thought the people from Tartan were looking for 'talent'). It has no story, the photography of an amateur, the worst acting ever seen, overuse of voice over (are this people going to learn some day to write a script with no voice over, excuse me, this is movie image, what you can't tell with images, it's simply bad script, it's a complete cliché and passé. I bet there is a lot of more talent in the UK with better ideas (and more originals) than this one, that actually looks more like a student film. Who decided to give some money to make this thing (impossible to call it film/movie, etc) possible? This is not a Guy Ritchie's film, this is simple rubbish. Are they actors? If they are, please, quit, all of you are very bad. Gentlemen of the Film Council give money to good projects and forget about bad written stories packed of unnecessary voice over.
