Enjoyable film from start to finish!
3 April 2000 | by julia-52See all my reviews

I saw this film at a preview screening. If you only see one film about Bingo set in South Wales this year - make it this one. Fantastic performances from all concerned and the superbly refreshing direction means never a dull moment. This is not your standard Brit-Film. When the film ends, you'll want to go back in and watch it all over again. Director Julian Kemp is certainly one to watch out for in the future! I highly recommend you see this film.
