Was this a comedy?,

When this film had finished, I was still trying to work out exactly what I had seen. Was this an attempt at a Brit gangster film? Perhaps it was a comedy of sorts offering a popular culture view of the sixties. Whatever it was meant to be, it was, to say the least, cringeworthy and embarrassing to watch.
Three sisters dress up as men in order to go burgling and in so doing, they hope to get out of the social rut that is the east end of London. The problems with the film start here. The women, despite the disguises, are still obviously female and they still speak in undisguised female voices. Surely no-one would fall for this. The accents are obviously fake cockney and the facial grimmaces when trying to look hard are laughable, and this being set in the sixties, the whole film is sixties cliche overload.
This film was an attempt by the Appleton sisters and Melanie Blatt to break into films, but someone should have had a few words in their ears, and whatever Dave Stewart does, directing a gangster film is not his forte. In my opinion, this film is not recommended viewing.
