Eye for Film

This derivative drama might have worked quite well as a four-part mini Sunday night series for the BBC. As a film, however, it fails on almost every count.

June 20, 2007

Hence, while it works as an antidote to the gritty realism of recent British films, Grow Your Own's twee optimism is sometimes a little too much to digest.

One could wish that this parable of difference and tolerance gladdened the heart, but its effortful comedy has quite the opposite effect. It's just weedy.

Plenty of over-British Britishness in this predictable drama.

Well-intentioned, and well-cast, this British movie is nonetheless desperately underpowered.

This is London

Affectionate and heartwarming it will seem to those who enjoy this sort of thing; painfully slow and dramatically inert might be the criticism of doubters.

Director Nimrod Attal manages the setting-up of this situation with some skill, but it's never developed. Nor are any of the characters.

It's what could be termed a gentle comedy, this story about immigrants trying to blend into the fabric of rural British society; a routinely pleasant small comedy that explores Britain's immigration issues and relevant enough to touch a nerve anywhere

It's a shame for John Pilger that The War on Democracy, his documentary about how Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez is a symbol of the growth of people power in Latin America, is being released at a time when Chávez has shut down TV companies that oppose him.

Grow Your Own has about as much edge as a prize melon, but even if the land's been well filled, there's still plenty of fertile soil here. Occasionally melancholy, often funny, this is touching, lyrical home-grown fare.

A gentle, astute, life-affirming British comedy. Dig in.

This film is more Ground Force than ground-breaking. Watch it on DVD with a nice cup of tea.

Director Richard Laxton offers nothing to convince that we shouldn't be watching this one-off drama on the box on a Sunday night with one eye closed. More meat and less veg please

Daily Mirror [UK]

With its chirpy score, lovable characters and Festival Of Britain flavour, Grow Your Own would have bedded in nicely as a TV movie. On the big screen, it starts to wilt.

Average comedy-drama that's not as moving or as funny as it thinks it is, but remains watchable thanks to strong performances and likeable characters.

Times [UK]

The movie seems at times so impressed by its own allegory that it lessens the human drama running beneath it.
