Shallow Grave

Shallow Grave"I'm not ashamed. I've known love. I've known rejection. I'm not afraid to declare my feelings. Take trust, for instance, or friendship: these are the important things in life, these are the things that matter, that help you on your way. If you can't trust your friends, well, what then? What then? This could have been any city: they're all the same."

This is one of my favourite films of all time and it brings back a lot of memories for me. I watched it when it came out more than 10 years ago in a Sony Theatre in NYC. It was also the first time I heard of director Danny Boyle and the group, Leftfield, who had a great opening track to the film. Since then I've been a great fan of both.

If you reckon you can understand Scottish accents... then you'll most likely be able to enjoy this film, which explores the themes of friendship, trust, greed and subtleties of male-female interactions. Not much gore at all but the suspense is enough to get you squirming in your seat. The edit style was also what caught my eye and made this film an all-time favourite - fresh and modern, slick and stylish... would be how I describe it.

The DVD of course is available at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.de
