  3. andydust's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    Best drunken film scene.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    Comédie britannique lucide et tendrement désespérée, sertie d'une lancinante ritournelle bienvenue, qui force l'admiration et le respect. En effet, malgré l'affutée description d'un milieu et de personnages en mouise et dérapages constants, le cinéaste, comme à sa remarquable habitude, témoigne d'une profonde et sincère affection pour ces laissés-pour-compte de la société libérale thatchérienne... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Branca's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    Honesto, cru e encantador. Um filme para descomplicar os complexos que a cabeça tende a criar.

  10. Halil Küçükyıldız's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    I don't understand what i am watching. A movie or a sketch. This film isn't appropriate for Mike Leigh.

  12. ehk2's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

  13. Leif Erikson's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    It's better to be on your own than be with a bastard.

  14. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    **** 1/2 All about compartmentalization in its many forms: social, economic, sexual, behavioral, etc. Leigh articulates this visually. By way of door frames, house windows, food truck windows, & other visual frames, he creates a theater of compartmentalized vignettes. Nothing.but.vignettes. A subtle mastery of cinematic form, staging, acting. The Aubrey/Paula relationship is handled wrongly. J. Horrocks:sublime.

  15. João Rocha's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    It's so honest, cruel and funny like the life itself, that is really fucking emotional and sweet. Great perfomances (Nicola is really awesome) and really good dialogues

  16. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

  17. David Grillo's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    If only we had more films like this than maybe life wouldn't seem so complicated. Films where families are diverse and need to learn to live together and all that teenage 90's angst we got used to became complex even the usual psychological cliches get a brave look and are treated honestly. A film where the only way to reach a teenager is after a heated argument and a good cry, more films like this please.

  18. birthdayblues's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    Timothy Spall as Aubrey is one of my all-time favourite characters

  19. juancito's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    Life is sweet is an amazing film - not only the characters and the dialog but the theme. it is so simple but the drama concealed in the day to day monotony is the real life that slips away without anybody even knowing it. I admit I am easily affected my movies, on the edge of my seat, hiding in my hands or embarrassed myself for what a protagonist may do or say - yet it's been a while since I found myself crying.

  20. Earth's Impossible Day's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    I fell in love with Nicola, her voice is just so alluring.

  21. D/R/W's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    This movie simply blew me away. Gentle and hilarious but also brutally honest

  22. NICOLE86's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    I have never related more to a character in my life than I have Nicola.

  23. Amanda Arantes's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    Simple and soothing, perfect for a sunday afternoon. Everytime I watch a movie like that, which shows the ordinary life of ordinary people, it just seems to me that it's a tale about life itself...and that's the beauty of it. No need of deep thoughts or thrilling adventure, just people and life, it can be pretty moving. I like Leigh's sundtracks, they're nice.

  24. KiNo's rating of the film Life Is Sweet

    I had a laugh, yes, but one thing that pisses me off about Mike Leigh is his use of terrible music to evoke emotion. All scores must be taken out of his films. Brrrghh.
