REVIEW:I was really intrigued to watch this film from the day I first saw the trailer. Unfortunately, my friends weren't, so when the film actually arrived in the Greek cinemas, I had no one to go with. So, as it always happens, I waited patiently, until the DVD came out.
It's an interesting movie, that's all I can say. Now, don't tell me that the title is not interesting, because I think it was the thing that attracted me into watching the film in the first place.
It has a nice plot. It shows to you how life can easily change, and the characters were really different from one another. Each girl had its own characteristics and she was having different obstacles in her life. Despite, the chasing they were involved from the diamonds, they had personal issues to deal with. Each character is dealing with the situation differently, and I was so amazed to see myself in some sort of reaction, and I'm pretty sure, that you'll see yourself into those reactions too. The movie has it all. Bad-ass characters, pathetic characters, vilians, bad language, fightings, guns, not many drugs and obviously, sex of almost all kinds. So, if you have a problem with one of those, skip the movie completely. I, for once, had no problem at all.
Next thing I want to mention is the directing part. I didn't know Noel Clarke at all before watching the film, and for telling the truth, searching him online and finding out he is mostly an actor, I was a little worried when I read that he wrote and co-directed the film. But, I was so surprised to find out the way he choose to make it. See, he take every girls life in those three days seperately, so we watch one girl at the time, from the time they say their goodbyes till the time they meet again three days later, not four different stories at the same time, as we are used to. Amazingly done, the film deserved the good words the critics wrote about it.
Bottom line, it's a weird movie. Different from what we're used to, you're definetely have a problem watching it. But, I strongly believe, that ones in a while we have to see something different. I, personally, loved it. I can easily watch it twice or trice, but then it's just me. I leave it up to you, and please comment back to tell me your opinion.
