Once again Michael Winterbottom has proved he is the leading expert on foreign current affairs. ‘In This World’ gets 10/10 for gritty realism, as the documentary style in which it is filmed tends to make you forget what parts of the movie are fiction. ‘In This World’ has gone far beyond ‘Welcome to Sarajevo’ (another of Winterbottom’s portrayals of people in crisis) as the personal level in which it reaches the audience is unmatched by any other film I have seen. The personal struggle of Jamal and Enayat over-land from Pakistan (via Iran, Turkey, Italy and France) to London is riddled with danger they will have to overcome including border guards, greedy people traffickers and death round every corner. 'In This World' is a film everyone should see especially those with a foul attitude towards asylum seekers.
British filmmaking at its BEST

In reply to the reviewer who stated that he didn't enjoy this film as it had a "dubious moral centre", I'm sorry but I really disagree...
The film is about the international community marginalising those who they are responsible for, these are refugees who have been bombed out of house and home by western governments and then made to live out a dead-end existence in refugee camps, throughout the film they are struggling to get back what has been forcibly taken from them, a free existence.
The ways they go about doing this are the only chance they have, I'm not saying your sympathys should lie with the characters, but the blame should not, this is a topical film of the current political climate.
anyway otherwise, fantastic acting, cinematography by a true modern great.

'In This World' delivers a convincing insight into the concealed world of human trafficing, and the desperate lengths some people will go to in order to seek a 'better' life in the Western World. Although this film is a finctionisation of true events, the combination of an amateur cast and third-person camerawork gives this film a documentary feel- it is all to easy to imagine these events taking place everyday around the world.
The film does not go out of it's way to evoke sympathy, tragegy is almost brutally ignored, rather than sentimentally dwelt upon, and there is no pretence of abject suffering in the lives of the unfortunate asylum seekers- merely the dream of a better life in London. Never-the-less one cannot help but be drawn to these compelling characters, and be dissatisfied with the film's conclusion- as with immigration as a whole, there are no answers to be found here.
This is the human face of immigration, and one too often hidden from the eyes of the world. Highly recommended.

Over the last decade, Michael Winterbottom has emerged as the most intelligent and creative filmmaker working in Britain today. Unlike his contemporaries, he is unconcerned by the pressures of the U.S. and the importance of the Hollywood movie-system, and instead, has crafted a series of visually distinctive and emotionally heartfelt films dealing with a range of subjects; from sexual jealousy, infertility, modern-day alienation, the American frontier, and Manchester's vibrant post-punk music scene. His best films have fused dreamlike imagery (often drawing on Bergman and Kieslowski as his primary inspiration) with an almost-documentary sense of time, place and character. In This World takes that idea to new and unexplored levels, giving us a film that sets up an anti-reality, which allows the film to drift in and out of the real and the surreal at any given time to further establish the strained connection that the characters literally have with the world around them.
The sense of space seems lifted from the work of Iranian filmmakers like Samira Makhmalbaf (the Apple, Blackboards) with the idea of heightened reality coming from the employment of non-professional actors and the general cultural background of the characters. In the opening scenes, Winterbottom offers us an anachronistic narration to give the film a further sense of reality, whilst later scenes show townsfolk and children gazing with wonderment into the camera lens. This façade of the real, (though it is a fictional account based on fact) is so successful, that whenever a character died on screen the people who I viewed the film with questioned whether or not Winterbottom was creating some kind of art-house snuff.

I'm not really sure why this film has such high ratings, I felt no connection with the characters and at times the acting wasnt very good. There was no real tension running through the story either and in every single crowd scene a bunch of bystanders stared right into the camera like cows in a field (this took me out of the movie every time). This would have been fine if it was a true documentary (which it seems to start off as with a voice over at the beginning) but when various border guards ignored the camera it was plain that the whole thing was a patched together exercise that just felt fake. Its a shame because I had looked forward to a heartfelt road trip struggle to escape a life of poverty (which I seemed to have been promised in many reviews), but the two guys involved were throwing money around with abandon (hotels, ice creams, a walkman etc) and even the soaring strings (randomly patched on to the soundtrack) just failed to instill any emotion on my watch.
