CGiii Comment

The plight of economic émigréis a difficult subject at the best of times. Add duplicity and deceit...with these two [extra] ingredients, every case instantly becomes a minefield for heated debate and furious argument...and, a terrifying resurgence of a right-wing politic! The question that the 'angry' never ask themselves is: What would you do for a better life? If they answer truthfully...all that rage should evaporate.

Indeed, a massive and contentious subject...not exactly the required material for a comedy!

These oh-so disparate lives - they don't come any more disparate - gay/straight, white/black, man/woman, European/African, oil/water...nor do they come any more desperate. Money matters, money talks...money can make [some of the] problems go away. Money and desperation make people do crazy things...like marrying your complete opposite...not out of love...but, for a little bit of security.

This is a film that shifts form in the blink of an eye...from being an endearing, gentle comedy [of manners] to scorching social comment to something that cannot be mentioned...as it will ruin the film! Expect a few surprises...the biggest one being how perfectly matched this oddest of odd couples actually are!

It's a wee delight...and, the chemistry is electric!
