Bitter sweet of course,
This review is from: Life Is Sweet [DVD] (DVD)
Do you like movies that have plot and pace and "action"?
Then forget this. This is typical Mike Leigh cinematography in which the camera follows the sometimes sordid goings on in a working-class British household with trenchant humour.
The happenings are well recorded in the Wikipedia article.
Jane Horrocks and Claire Skinner give absolute knock-out performances as the twin daughters, but the whole cast is superb. If your brain hasn't been anaesthetised by all the crap that comes out of Hollywood these days, get this and enjoy scene-making and satire of the first order. Thanks yet again, Mike Leigh.
