A Quiet Desperation

  • Film
0 Love It
When, prompted by the death of his brother, Shammi returns home to Southall, he reignites a number of unfinished stories, while provoking mixed emotions by his significant time away. Indifference, isolation, prostitution and murder all lead to major confrontations and reassessments. Atmospheric and effectively scored, its too literal voice-over aside, this tale of one man's journey through a quasi-deserted city and the past nevertheless provides an insight into a little known London community.

Shamim B

I just saw this film on DVD at a friends house. What a great movie, such a shame the film didn't get a wide screening or recognition when it came out. My friend explained that he saw it in East London where it was shown in a film festival and it was one of the most amazing British Asian films he had seen. Please make more films Shakila Taranum Maan. British film producers sit up and see and support this unique voice and talent!
