  • Marc Isaacs stakes a claim as documentary film-making's pre-eminent people person in a subtle film about the immigrants along the A5.

  • Much to admire here, but not Isaacs' finest hour.

  • More than a film about immigration, this is a film about London - a city where journeys begin as often as they end and where life's roads are far too unpredictable to be mapped.

  • Feels like it's only ever scratching the surface of life as an exile. But as a personal portrait of disparate individuals, it's a lyrical and understated piece with a quiet emotional pull.

  • It includes some harrowing, touching and eye-opening material, shot carefully by Isaac and boasting an entirely complimentary, if slightly maudlin soundtrack composed by Lance Hogan.

  • [A] moving, deeply sad documentary about immigrants living at the London end of the A5.
