Another London teen niche culture rich UK film.,
This review is from: Everywhere and Nowhere [DVD] (DVD)
The star of the film is the music, which is dance remixes of Asian music. The story is about a handful of Asian young 20's friends. The main character is a studying accountant desperate to be a DJ. He and his friends are all struggling with their family's expectations and cultures.
This film is shot well, quite well acted and caste, slick but takes itself too seriously, lacking humour, class and finesse. It is a short insight into Asian/UK culture, almost like an ITV drama.
If you like Noel Clarke's films (Kidulthood) then you will probably enjoy this, I did. It differs from those type of films in that it is more of a drama, being (well becoming) more dramatic and less of a chavvy cool expression, as it actually starts out. I don't know if this worth praising or makes the film fall short of audience expectations.
Everywhere and Nowhere, of which the film goes, is a small niche film about a young Asian man who wants to be a DJ, going against his strict father and a small insight into 'life is too short, do what YOU want to do' etc.
In amongst the clichés, swearing, drugs, sex and teen rebellion I'm certain there are credible messages.
