This review is from: Somers Town [DVD] (2008) (DVD)
I didn't really "get" "Somer's Town" at all. It is a supremely brief film (it lasts just over an hour) which tracks the adventures of two teenage misfits as they wander around a council estate in North London; one is a runaway from Nottingham,the other is a Polish immigrant. Both of them are rather purposeless and somewhat alienated from society.They spend their long summer days chasing after a French waitress, stealing clothes, getting drunk and doing odd-jobs for a market trader . I didn't warm to the two teenagers, I didn't like the fantasy ending and I found the whole film to be a bit incongruous.
