Dirty Pretty Things (2002)

Dirty Pretty Things is one of those films you know you will enjoy it from the very first picture that flows across the screen. There's just something there. Something magical.

The cinematography sweeps you into a dreamlike state, which you somehow feel you recognize. Then, as you get to know the characters, you find yourself spellbound by the melancholy mood of their story.

You've met these people. You've see them every day. But you've never got to know them personally. You always make sure to ignore them.

This film makes you think about things you have striven to put out of your thoughts. And at the end of it all, you're left with the sad knowledge that this is all true. This is not a thriller. It's everyday reality.
