5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Hilarious! Entertaining!, 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: East Is East [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
East Is East is nothing less than a masterpiece!

This film is appealing to so many people for so many different reasons. I am someone who is not that keen on modern films - not least because of their violence, crudity and constant flow of unnecessary bad language; however, despite what can only be described as this film's appallingly frequent and 'filthy' dialogue, it incredibly does not detract from what is otherwise a very sensitive and altogether 'human' story, and indeed contributes to much of the comedy and humour of the movie throughout. Anyone like myself who is old enough to have lived through 1971 will appreciate the sheer mastery at which the cast were able to recreate that particular era to utter perfection.

Unlike so many movies - including great ones, there is no 'pause' within this film where you are bored - not even for a minute whilst awaiting the next entertaining moment; each scene is superb! I've already watched this title six times to date, and will no doubt view it many, many more times to come, and still enjoy it.

Highly recommended to all - even to those who do not normally care for bad language, and the odd bit of domestic violence.

Enjoy!
