Directed by Dominic Savage, this modern love story is set against the racial tensions of a small town in Northern England. Seventeen-year-old Naseema (Samina Awan) is a young Muslim woman who works in the same DIY shop as Adam (Tom Hudson), who is a typical product of a home and community in which racism and bigotry are not only firmly entrenched but are actively encouraged. Despite their differences, the two find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. The relationship that develops betwen them not only challenges their personal values but threatens to tear apart the very fabric of their lives and families.

with a message for us all about love, life and racial tension.
the acting from the 2 main characters is superb.
i found it vey informative and gave me a whole new insight into racial discrimination from both sides of the ''divide''.
an absolute must see movie, and i can't wait for the soundtrack to emerge, the music is great.
The main problem is that to fit the whole storyline in, the plot is pared down to its essentials so that it can seem at times unbearably didactic. There is little time for subplots and context when there are two couples to create, divide and (finally, for one couple) reunite.
However, this is a film which has some surprises. The amateurish performances, whilst occaisonally wooden, are sometimes quite incredibly good. In particular Nichola Burley who plays Michelle - the white girl who's old before her years yet frighteningly young at the same time - really succeeds in bringing a complex character to life.
There are weak moments. It fails to truly explore why Naseema falls for Adam, it's just rather convenient that she does. Once that hurdle is surmounted, the relationship is brought slowly to life, but a chronic lack of dialogue between them makes it inconvincing right to the end. Also, some of the acting is hollow, in particular from the generic white youths and occaisonally from Naseema (the heroine) herself. Finally, the contrived entangling of the two families, through Naseema's brother, is definitely a twist too far, however neat and tidy it keeps the plot.Read more ›
I really cannot rate this film highly enough, it is affecting from the outset. From the amusing warmhearted store Manager to the vitrionic and hypocritical prejudices of other characters that unfold... there are so many layers to this amazing film.
The young actors blow you away... they are almost too good to have been trained.. if that makes any sense at all.
I am a white woman, schooled in a 'black' school and raised in a 'black' area. I have had friends, partners, bosses, teachers, flatmates from every background under the sun. I have seen and known the filth of hatred from each direction and the beauty of love and enquiring minds. This film has so much to bring to the table in an honest look at modern Britain and would be a great resource for anyone doing social and personal education with schoolkids/youth centres (of a certain age)to stimulate thought and discussion, particularly so in areas of racial tension - because it draws so beautifully on commonalities of human need (and desire). Truly a modern masterpiece.
The story may not be 'original' as in you could compare to Romeo & Juliet, West Side Story etc, but it takes an interesting slant which encompasses very real problems of today, racism and bigotry from both sides of the fence, the Iraq war and the hypocrisy of religion as a whole.
I too felt empathy for all sides involved, and felt a huge thumbs up is due to the director, Dominic Savage, who managed to achieve this.

This film was made by a middle aged, middle class man from Kent, and it shows. Insulting from the word go, I genuinely found this film offensive. Read morePublished on 1 Oct. 2011 by Arte Et Labore
This film started off very well with its main character Naseema meeting the ignorant racist who she eventually falls for. Read morePublished on 4 Feb. 2009 by N. Forbes
Watching this excellent film gave me, for the first time, some understanding of what keeps racism alive - it is a subculture with pressures of its own. Read morePublished on 27 Mar. 2008 by Richard
