Great surprise!
10 January 2019 | by mahatmakerbalaSee all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from this little East London film. I watched it on Sky last week.

Very very powerful story. The fate of the main character is sad and tragic, yet so realistic. The film is very intense but it's worth the trip. It stayed with me for a few days as I kept thinking about how my neighbourhood changed over the years and how people come and go unnoticed.

Performances and music are really great and original. Lachlan Nieboer (Richard, the main guy) is very touching, very scary. He's surrounded by good actors (special nod to Haluk Bilginer and Alan Ford. I am surprised we don't see them together more. They are so good).

Visuals are great too. The party scenes look beautiful and London feels vibrant.

A nice little film that will surprise you!
