Not a movie you can sit through and come out feeling happy afterwards. But a movie that it rivetingly uncomfortable, and it reflects real life as a lot of people know it. Having known people like some of the characters, it doesn't feel at all contrived unlike many movies of similar vein. Refreshing to see such realism in cinema - movies like this expand the palette of film. Wish Oldman would direct/write more.
only made one film and he could achieve what people call perfection, this is typically alan clarke and mike leigh in join, you can see how many time the "cunt" bursted from them mouths from start till the end, you can see what family issue around. thinking of Meantime, thinking of Made In Britain. sorry i couldnt approve the fact that besson produced it
