Toast (2010 TV Movie)
Avoidable
16 October 2011
An utterly tedious watch, I saw this at the film festival here in Mumbai. There is no sense of progression or screenplay, no genuine engagement in characters, and actually it's very fertile material for all these things.

That it was a true story only came to me when the film ended and I saw the final card with Nigel Slater's picture. But, an interesting life doesn't make for a great film (or even a good one), if the story is not well-told.

The genre 'TV Movie' is right for this film, and that is where it should remain. It works at episodes strung together, watched at comfortable intervals. It's not 'appetising' film viewing.
