Scottish brilliance - The Angels' Share review by JD

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2012

This film is masterful. In essence a comedy but drawing on despair and hope in equal measure. I was intrigued that the main characters included actors who were previously untrained. The experienced actors must have been a very positive influence on them as the effect is of genuine criminal mentality, poverty and desperation. Not the usual home counties actors putting on dreadful provincial accents. The filming is both beautiful and simple and captures the mood magnificently. For everyone but particularly if you like Scotland.

Superb piece of British Cinema - The Angels' Share review by TB

Spoiler Alert
06/08/2019

A really well crafted piece of British Cinema that's uplifting, charming and superb in its deliver of a genuine sense of realness throughout. The film doesn't have a star cast and in fact I can't say I've heard of any of the actors or actresses but who cares as they were all superb. Each performance is outstanding and leaves you being completely endeared to each and every characters on so many different levels.

I really can't fault the way that the film captures every characters story, emotional state and beautiful outlook, even from the darkest beginings in some cases.

It takes you on a journey of despair, belief and hope; and with a perfectly balanced addition of comedy this film is a real triumph!!
