I wish Hollywood would watch these "normal" budget movies and get a hint. Although movies with lots special effects and CGI are fun to watch they don't really sink into our minds, and, in general, have a lousy story.

These UK movies are extremely well acted, with an excellent and smart dialogue. The photography is out of this world and the sound is well adapted to each of the scenes.

In particular, this movie, although long and complicated in story, zipped by my eyes and kept me glued to my chair while I was watching it. The characterizations are flawless and the acting by all the cast members is invisible and professional. You'd think that you're watching real "real" people. They bring the characters to life in an adult way. Of special mention is Celia Imrie in her portrayal of Vera. This actress gets my personal "Oscar" for her work in this movie.

This movie doesn't pull any punches, it shows life as it is without hiding behind a false morality. I can only hope that movies in the US begin to grow up to adulthood and treat issues in an adult manner.
