Set in Glasgow, a woman who watches closed circuit TV all day for the police gets obsessed with a particular man she believes may be a criminal (shades of 'Rear Window'). She personally starts to track him, wrapping us up in her voyeurism.
Gradually, piece by piece, the whys behind the story fall into place, and we are ultimately lead to some very emotional territory. Perhaps the ending twists are a bit pat, or quick, but they worked for me. If Mike Leigh made a Hitchcock film, it might be something like this. (An amazing version of `Love Will Tear Us Apart' over the end credits gave me shivers).
Tremendously impressive for a first feature (or a 10th feature for that matter!).
