  • Once Lombard starts throwing stilettos, you know it's time to get off the line.

  • Occasionally this film looks as if it has achieved the movie equivalent of John Peel's legendary 45-played-at-33 mistake. It is a shame, because there is a real creative intelligence behind it.

    February 13, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Mark Simon Hewis has a good eye, but his ear for material is way off.

    February 13, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • In its favour, there's a whimsical sense of humour which means you're never far from an unexpected smile; but otherwise the central romance is lukewarm.

    February 11, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Hewis's film captures the inconsequential nature of nine-to-five desk jockeying, while the Bristol backdrop lends it plenty of character.

    February 14, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • British filmmaker Martin Simon Hewis uses dark humour and visual trickery to overcome what is clearly a very small budget. Even if the comedy feels low-key and uneven, it continually catches us off-guard with inventive touches bringing out deeper themes.
