east is east,
This review is from: East Is East [DVD]  (DVD)
Having first seen the cover I thought rubbish, however, I rate this as a very funny film. The setting depicts the struggle of a white/ pakistani marriage with the children all doing their own thing. Having a strict father serve all the more in making the children rebel against their pakistan upbringing. Having been born in England it is obvious that their ways and mannerisms are going to be more of an english nature. A very funny seen is when they go to "Bradistan" Bradford, to "cement" an arranged marriage only to find that when they get there all is not as it seems, the prospective wives to be look more like Laurel and Hardy than the pretty girls that boys thought that they would be, this throws the whole of the boys family into chaos with both familys falling out much to the boys relief, safe in the knowledge that they are free to play the field for another day. If you can see all the funny sides to this film you will be garanteed aching side from laughing so much. It is a film that is well written, taken a lot of thought and is true to the attitude of the 70's children.
