I really enjoyed reading Monica Ali's novel on which this beautiful, quiet film is based and while I enjoyed the richer experience of all the back stories in the novel more than the film this movie offers great insight into the Bengali immigrant experience in London. The acting is nuanced and the cinematography is lush.
One of 2008's Best!
