Has an aura of honest observation that engages even when almost nothing is happening on-screen.

Aimless British mumblecore.

Quite a poignant movie for me as it‚(TM)s a low key study of a group of 20 and 30 something friends making their way through North London life around the turn of the millennium ‚" there is a particular light about the summers in that part of the world and the uncertainties of relationships and general struggle to get by make for an involving, unhistrionic film.

Aiden Gillen is excellent as ever and Six Music‚(TM)s Adam and Joe even make an appearance at one point ‚" they are clients of the props firm that Gillen and his mates work for. Mercifully, the Brummie accent of the hero‚(TM)s love interest is also not suppressed. Thraves recently returned to directing after a gap of a decade and this is something of a lost gem.

Perfectly acted, gently dramatic study of the highs and lows of real-life, with a deeply personal script and some beautifully directed ensemble scenes. One of the few perfect British films to come out of the late 90's.

A stymied account of inner-city friend and relationships with a particular strength on the script and excellent detail in the language.

This movie draws the life of Frank, a young north Londoner, who's life passes by with dull contract work, shallow friends and colleagues, and a series of meaningless events and encounters. Frank is floating, indecisive, but doesn't seem to care too much. The arrival of Ruby presents an opportunity to change ...

A somewhat insightful movie into the life of a North Londoner and youth in general, the film focuses on the everyday minutiae of friendship, betrayal and romantic diffidence. It is a bit off the wall, never quite caught my interest, although the film is quite coherent and fresh.
