If a movie can have a bad plot and still be good, this is one.
This is a long look into the eyes of poor immigrants in London. The plot is not awful but definitely has some weak points and what felt to me like compromises. Ultimately, though, it’s just a canvas to paint the portraits of the characters on – a gritty, involving portrait that had enough power to take me into a very foreign perspective. That makes it worth watching.
