Brisk, richly characterized fiction that cuts as deeply and truly as any documentary.

Without ever mentioning politics, Loach makes the most powerful and effective of political statements -- one that relies on subtlety and the intelligence of the audience.

The film is good-hearted and the characters are easy to identify with, but what I liked best was the underlying humor, even in this desperate situation.

Great story which focuses on a situation of a father who don't have enough money to buy a dress for her daughter . This movie is highly recommended and the direction was brilliant by Ken Loach .

Another beauty by Ken Loach. Powerful and effective in delivery. The viewer is forced to pick up the hidden nuggests of meaning embedded.
