Movie Info

Greek immigrant Harry Papadopoulos is a self-made millionaire with a lavish mansion house and extravagant lifestyle. But when the economic downturn hits, Harry suddenly loses everything. The one thing the bank cannot seize is the disused family fish and chip shop in London. Harry can't sell it without the consent of the co-owner - who happens to be his long-estranged brother Spiros. The only option is for Harry and his three children to move into the chippy itself - easier said than done,

The cast is pleasant enough to enliven the generic material, though much of writer-director Marcus Markou's dialogue is beyond salvaging.

There are zero surprises here, but a strong cast and a decent script add up to dependable entertainment.

Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger was told his name was too big for movie posters, Marcus Markou's inspirational debut feature film has an impossible title on purpose.

A late pitch at pathos isn't quite so convincing, but otherwise this is a fresh, funny and poignant snapshot of ethnic life in London.

This flat, feelgood family story transposes the cliches of Zorba the Greek to the present day.

Some meaty themes and complex performances add badly needed weight to this somewhat simplistic British comedy-drama.

It's a bit laboured and not funny enough but has charm and heart.

In its favour, it's a movie with heart, charm and well-crafted characters.

It's a throwback, but relaxed, sweet and funny with it: a first feature that makes an impression by not pushing too hard to make an impression.

It gets by almost wholly on hangdog charm, but that's an underrated asset, and so is Dillane, delivering a terse and rueful performance that's typically excellent.

Daily Telegraph

Likeable British recession comedy enlivened by a strong support cast and a topical, engagingly feelgood central theme, though it's slightly let down by an underwritten script and a frustrating central performance from Stephen Dillane.

An undemanding comedy drama, but Stephen Dillane and Georges Corraface give crowd-pleasing performances.

Yes, it's sentimental and predictable, but there's a warmth and charm about Marcus Markou's feature debut that makes it hard to resist.
