British people shout at each other in a housing project. A marriage is put to the test.
This probably impressed me less than any other film by Mike Leigh that I’ve seen. But I mean that more as a compliment to Leigh than as a criticism of the film because its quite good by any normal standards. There’s an odd quality to its narrative structure. The film has two distinctive halves. The first deals with the collective life of a housing project in Kent and seems almost like a British-ization of Bela Tarr’s “Satantengo.” It’s relentlessly bleak- miserable people screaming at each other in conversations that go nowhere- and at times comes close to self-parody. I don’t think I’ve ever heard the phrases “F— off!” “You make me sick!” and “Care for a cup of tea then?” so many times in one hour. Yet, it retains a grim power, if for no other reason than the moments of mesmerizing cinematography by Dick Pope- its Leigh’s visually splashiest film since “Naked”- and the characteristically wonderful score by Andrew Dickson. The second half focuses much more conventionally on one family, and is, taken in and of itself, one of the most warm and sentimental works Leigh has produced. Timothy Spall gives another great performance as a genuinely philosophical, and lazy, man. His marriage is put to the test. You feel happy at the out-come, but not sure its in anyone in the family’s best-interest.
A bleak look at marginalised society in inner city Britain.
This film showcases some of the UK’s finest acting talent but it is let down by it’s funereal pacing and unrelenting bleakness.
The performances by all the main characters are very strong. Timothy Spall is as reliable as ever and Lesley Manville has never been better as his partner Penny. Her face and nuances perfectly convey someone who has been bruised and battered by life and the world around her. Alison Garland is also outstanding as the daughter who is one of life’s invisible people. There is a stillness and shyness about her that makes her position genuinely unsettling.
The film has some very strong moments. When it is time for Phil (Spall) to pay his weekly charge to the Taxi firm, his search for money is genuinely moving. The way people react when they are in crisis and the stupid things people say when they are in shock are also very well drawn.
Having said that I still walked out of this film disappointed. At 2 hrs 8 mins it is very heavy going – there is virtually no joy or optimism in this film. The film’s strength is it’s character observation but this has been done at the expense of plot development and it leaves us with a very one sided view of working class society.
