Hati Le's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

I really enjoyed this film, it is visually very appealing (don't watch on an empty stomach). However, i thought that it got a bit ridiculous when the narrative shifted to present day Istanbul - why do the actors speak English all of a sudden? It takes away a lot of the character and charm that the child actors have been building up before. Will definitely remember to put cinnamon into my meatballs next time i cook.
