Before you see this soscialrealistic kind of drama made with english touch of nongrandiouse filmaking. the actors a stern , cool and good in their roles, and its a kind of overwhelming silence throughout the whole movie.
its about 2 sister living across the street of eachother, one in a routine love relationship, the other live in love hardships, in a little town somewhere in south england, its a film about marriage, domestic abuse and violence,lying and decieft, unemployment,silence and and secret rumours, adolescent adults, the jantelaw,sisterhood, and sudden childdeath.
sudden childdeath, is everyones gratest nightmare, ive been spared for it, but im pretty cautious on behalf of my own childrens children. the subject here is whether its done on semipurposed reason by shaking or slapping a uncomfy,screaming baby, making the parent go blinded by the dispair and accidentially kills the little one by accident, or is it just another mysterious childeath of unknown reasons.
its a sad and very depressing film, especially on behalf of the community's reaction, and hate uttering by tagging cars and house and shouting and use of swearword as the sorrowing flock of realatives and friend does the last mile on foot behind the funeral car. i am disgusted by people that hangs over the fence theorizing and spreading rumours that soon will become a true legend. because it happens and its poisonous.
production are well made, nothing extravagant that would damage the dire straits, and musical score ae nearly absent. so let the warning be from the grumpy old man, if you happen to be or have big problems ripping up prehistoric memories of childdeath yourself then do not watch alone, its quite dehumanizing and raw at times. its a big recommend.
