Movies From the Hat IV #37 – Mr. O’s Pick – Late Night Shopping (2001)


This is my 2496th Review

Thanks to Mr. O. husband of Abbi from Abbiosbiston.com for this recommendation.

Here are her (Abbi’s) thoughts on the film.

late-night-shopping“And then what? ” – Jodie

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Sep 2016)

Brief Synopsis – A group of friends who work at night meet up on a nightly basis to discuss their mutual life problems.

My Take on it – When it comes to low budget British indie films, I am definitely not one who knows much about the genre.

When Mr. O. suggested this film, I wasn’t quite sure what I would think about it, but was still willing to give it a try to see why he thought that I might enjoy this film (being that his wife didn’t really like it very much)

What I like about this film the most are the characters.

They are developed quite well for us and it’s quite easy to relate to each and every one of them because they seem so normal and also so real.

Each of them are completely different yet they are all similar in their lifestyles because that is what makes them friends (or acquaintances).

They all seem like regular people who have normal lives like us and natural flaws and that actually makes it even easier to sympathize with them because we can understand how people can act like they do.

This film does a great job of staying serious but not getting too heavy for us by throwing in a lot of light scenes filled with some laughter or even a comic situation.

I’m actually quite glad I saw this because without a recommendation like this from Mr. O., I doubt that I ever would have come across this interesting film.

Bottom Line – Liked the characters because they were all similar yet diverse.  The characters were also quite easy to relate to because they seemed like regular people with regular job and regular problems.  It’s done in a very light manner where they easily mix serious and comic situations.  Each of the characters have their flaws but we don’t really care because they are all natural flaws that any one of us could also have. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Late Night Shopping was largely filmed in Glasgow. (From IMDB)
