`Dirty Pretty Things', Stephen Frears' latest film played last year inEurope, but the North American opportunity to see it only came yesterday.Much buzz, fortunately all merited, preceded it: an amazing Nigerianactor,Chiwetel Ejiofor, already acclaimed for his stage performances, makes hisbig-screen...
First off I want to say that I'm not going to write about neither theplot nor the contents of this film, while it's rather unnecessary.The best way to describe "Dirty pretty things", is in my opinion, thatit is like a beautiful poem. It flows easily and because of the factthat the cast are such good...
A thoroughly engaging film which I would have no hesitation inrecommending.Other reviewers have given away the major elements of the plot which maymean that you may find that it takes time to "cut to the chase" if youreadthe comments here before you see it. You are better off seeing this film"cold" ...
Who on earth wrote the last commentary? While I might agree that the movie appears 'preachy' compared withtypical Hollywood crap which is incapable of analysis, this movieportrays non-Americans in a non-American world. It is subtle,entertaining, excels with its dark humor, and is an accurate portray...
This is not a film for those without a strong heart, as it shows in a veryreal way what goes on among the desperate people of third world countriesliving illegally in London. It shows what desperation can do to a humanbeing in order to survive.Stephen Frears is a fearless director. Most of the work ...
In London, the Nigerian illegal immigrant and former doctor Okwe(Chiwetel Ejiofor) works as cab driver along the day and in the frontdesk of a hotel managed by Juan 'Sneaky' (Sergi López) in the graveyardshift. He shares a couch in the small flat of the Turkish illegalimmigrant Senay (Audrey Tautou...
Organ trafficking is the central theme of this overlooked great movieby Stephen Frears which received little noise when it came back intheatres in 2003 but managed to receive an Oscar nod for OriginalScreenplay. While this might not sound like the stuff that makesmovies, Frears creates a visually ef...
Among the 18 non-documentary films that I saw at last year's Toronto FilmFestival, this new Stephen Frears offering was my favorite. It isn'toftenthat a cutting-edge foreign director who's taken a dip in Hollywoodwaterscan ever recapture the style and flair that got him noticed by Hollywoodinthe f...
... I have to be honest and say that before I sat down to watch, Ihadn't given much thought to the subject, myself. Maybe it's thesuburban boy in me. Often you don't notice the true depths of depravityto be found in most cities unless you actively go looking for it.This happens to be about the under...
Dirty Pretty Things was at once a pleasant surprise and a slightdisappointment. It stands head and shoulders above the wreckage of mostrecent Britflicks, but it still never quite reaches the heights. Part of theproblem is that the background is the story, leaving us with an at timesslight narrative ...
Stephen Frears has once again given viewers a fascinating look at charactersthat seem to live in societies cracks and its underbelly. This film is aboutan illegal immigrant from Nigeria named Okwe (Chiwetel Ejiofor) who drives aminicab part time and also works the front desk at a hotel. He sleeps on...
Please see this film. Than, if you had never crossed those sort ofcharacters, please tell the oddities you found in it to some friend whomayhave been in social security, immigration department, or police services.You'll be surprised how many points in the films that you found to beunbelievable ficti...
SLIGHT SPOILERIn the publicity that surrounded the release of this film, StephenFrears expressed much embarrassment at the suggestion that he mightpossess any superior or special understanding to the plight of asylumseekers in Britain. After all, his chief role, as he himself hasmaintained in recent...
Dirty Pretty Things (2002)I saw this years ago, maybe when it first came out, and know I likedit. And I think I liked it even more this time. Always a good sign whena movie lasts.What works most is the beautiful filming and pace, and the steady,thoughtful, rather masterful performance by the lead ma...
"Dirty Pretty Things," a film directed by Stephen Frears is not quite athriller, romance or a drama, but it does manage to fit all threesuccessfully.An illegal immigrant in London (Chiwetel Ejiofor), working a day job asa cab driver and a hotel clerk in the Baltic Hotel at nights, discoversa human h...
`Dirty Pretty Things' is a thriller interrupted by a love story. Theimmigrant Brit working class is sometimes depicted by this film's directorStephen Frears (`My Beautiful Laundrette'); the native Brits are oftenchampioned by Mike Leigh (`Secrets and Lies'). In both cases, the kitchensink realism d...
I really didn't have a preconceived notion as to what this movie was aboutor even how good it might be. I was looking forward to seeing AudreyTautouworking with Frears. Upon seeing it, I have to say I was fairly dismayedatthe acting, directing, and writing.I did like the idea of what the director an...
The movie, a haunting drama that tackles the issues of illegalimmigrants in a system that is used and abused by the corrupt. The bestway to describe "Dirty pretty things", is in my opinion, that it islike a beautiful poem. It flows easily and because of the fact that thecast are such good actors/act...
Okwe (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is a Nigerian illegal immigrant in London. Thisbrooding man drives a taxi by day and works as a porter at a plushhotel in London by night. He supposedly never sleeps and chews on somekind of leaves to keep himself awake. He is a kind man; popular andwell-loved amongst fellow ...
Audrey Tautou proves once again to be one of the more interestingactresses working today. Here she is Senay, a Turkish maid working at aLondon motel. Her roommate drives a cab but was a doctor in his nativeNigeria. Okwe also works at the same motel at the front desk on thenight shift. A prostitute c...
The sensitive performance of Chiwetel Ejiofor, an actor I'd never seenbefore, is the best part of this movie.Next-best is the sense one gets of how harried, often over-educatedillegals try to eke out a living, just under the radar of theimmigration police, in dead-end jobs like driving a cab and wor...
It has been said that desperate times call for desperate measures, aconcept that director Stephen Frears explores to great success in"Dirty Pretty Things." Frears, whose previous films include "MyBeautiful Laundrette" and "The Grifters," has a knack for gettinginside his characters' minds and reveal...
A film about an emotive, controversial subject, but also with a touchingromantic subplot that is poignant but never sentimental. Great performancesfrom all the leads, particularly the moral opposites of Eijifor (Okwe) &Lopez (Sneaky). The photography was excellent depicting a sleazy London notnormal...
Stephen Frears is good at growing roses in unpromising surroundings, `MyBeautiful Laundrette' being a good example. Here he tells the almostuplifting tale of Okwe (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a Nigerian doctor who has becomean illegal immigrant to Britain, and his chaste relationship with a youngvirginal Tur...
"Dirty Pretty Things" benefits from the best script, hands down, writtenfora movie released in 2003. Great performances by the whole cast; tight,resourceful direction from Frears, and an unexpectedly poignant messageabout the exploitation of the powerless that goes on among us all thetime.The final...
