Unexpected, mad, enjoyment.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this. I had been on a film festival jury and seen another film by the same filmmakers, Two Down, which was outstanding, but this looked like the kind of British film I really don't enjoy, but my wife insisted we watch it, loving anything from the UK.
But it was excellent. Funny, quite odd, but very well acted and made. It has problems but they do amazing things with a modest budget and interesting to see that this was their first film and how much they had progressed from Miss in Her Teens to Two Down.
It is quite unlike any film I've seen before and one I can't stop thinking about, which prompted me to write this. It really does need to be seen by more people and appreciated for it's unique British comedy and charm. And some of those hilarious performances will stay with me for a while!
