Frequently Bought Together
FISH TANK is the story of 15-year old Mia (Katie Jarvis), whose life is turned on its head when her mother (Kierston Wareing) brings home a new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender). Set in the decaying landscape and council estates of Essex, director Andrea Arnold reinforces her reputation as a British auteur and casts the same unflinching, unprejudiced gaze and touches on the themes of her Oscar-winning short WASP to create an original and unsettling tale for our age.

I thought this film was really something special, completely different from the usual fare and had me captivated from beginnning to end. The relationship between Mia and Connor is electric, as he plays the supporting friend fantastically and you are not sure if it is completely one-sided or if there is mutual chemistry. Fishtank is well shot and illustrates the harshness of London council estates and what one must become in order to survive and persevere. More importantly, it shows Mia burning desire to escape her life through her aspirations to dance at any cost.
Katie Jarvis is an excellent actress for someone of her age and shows a full set of emotions, with both angry and sensitive moments, you really start to feel for her in her trials and tribulations. The film is more of a snapshot of her life than a biography; as it begins and ends rather abruptly and nothing is really left resolved at the end, despite this it is a very powerful film and will leave you thinking about some of the issues broached well after the credits have rolled. Highly recommended!!
This is a hyper-real film with the raw Katie Jarvis as the armoured but vulnerable girl in the lead role pitched perfectly against Michael Fassbender in one of his pre-Hollywood performances. Directorially, Shane Meadows would be the obvious analogy as best in British realist drama, but as a film it's less tailored which only adds to its ability to absorb the viewer into the grubbily intriguing plot.
One of my favourite films for lots of reasons, but not for those of delicate sensibilities; expect the basest (and in my view, funniest) types of language in insult trading, and some terribly uncomfortable scenes rising from the total lack of boundaries of the main characters. All in all though an amazing film, worth a watch, although perhaps on your own with a strong drink.
The story is pretty simple -- Mia lives with her single mother, Joanne (Kierston Wareing), and younger sister, Tyler (Rebecca Griffiths) in the Mardyke Estate in Essex, across the Thames estuary from London, in a low-rent apartment, about which I will only say that the decor and the surroundings tell you almost all you need to know, and Arnold's camera takes its time in capturing it throughout the movie. It isn't a slum by any means, but we are a long way here from Mike Leigh's middle-class (even lower middle-class) settings.Read more ›
