Well-done slice of a life now gone
13 April 2006 | by yotherSee all my reviews

This is the last of the so-called "kitchen sink" dramas to come out of a very creative period in English cinema history. It was lost until just recently, but one of the great things about DVD's is that producers are beating the bushes for sleepers like this. It's extremely well made, especially the photography, beautiful on-location filming in Nottingham, England, and the characters are three-dimensional and reasonably likable. Time references are a bit confusing as it switches back and forth between the present and the past, something you'll miss if you get up to get another beer at just the wrong moment. If you like somewhat stately-paced movies with a lot of character development, you'll like this one.
