It's Daniel Day Lewis, taut, intelligent, erotic, who is an emerging star.

Fast, bold, harsh and primitive like a prodigious student film with equal parts promise and threat.

This is a uniquely plausible portrait of life in England, yet its appeal isn't limited to social realism -- it also has a twist of buoyant fantasy and romance

This new British picture raises enough issues for a half-dozen more conventional movies. And though this approach makes for a structure that's a little shaky, the film somehow holds together.

As always, director Stephen Frears does a superb job of work when given a good script, and this is a very good script.

The strength of the film is its vision -- cutting, compassionate and sometimes hilarious -- of what it means to be Asian, and British, in Thatcher's Britain.

When it works, it's a sophisticated and modestly ambitious attempt to cast a glance at a minority culture struggling to gain a foothold in a troubling time and place.
