You may be mistaken for thinking this film has a religious heart. OK, it is a story of the seven deadly sins, but that's where the religion ends. In fact it is the story of humanity, expressed by describing a day in the life of a removals team. The chain of house-movers encompass all of the virtues and sins of the world. Not only do we see the upward transitions from affordable house to newly affordable homes, we see the fundamental impact a house-move has on the movers. We also see how similar the different classes, cultures and sexes are when faced with one of the most significant upheavals a human can endure: moving home.

Brilliant actors, brilliant screenplay, brilliant concept.

A superb movie that will have you belly-laughing.
