deepest rural England - and no roses round the door
8 April 2004 | by lindacamidgeSee all my reviews

The reality of rural life in England - specifically, in the flat, depressed fenlands left behind by the eighties - is presented in this everyday story of abbatoir folk. It's a film about the small-mindedness and meanness of spirit always lurking in the background; about youngsters trying to carve out an identity with recourse only to such culture as has somehow fallen their way (naming one of them Elvis was a masterstroke). Better and purer than Straw Dogs, though similar in some ways - Stan is not a yuppie incomer on a house-trade; the actor neither star nor pretty-boy - the film leaves us with the uneasy feeling that it is impossible to sympathise with or like any of these people. A very powerful drama about memory and the true price of living in those close-knit rural communities. Tempted to sigh nostalgically for paradise? Watch this instead.
