Montevideo, Uruguay. In this comedic drama, Elisa, 27, dreams of opening her own hairdressing salon in one of the rich districts of the Uruguayan capital. A bit of a rebel, one day Elisa moves out of her mother's house with her two children and breaks up with Garcia, her boss and lover who has infuriated her by not wanting to get married. So, in the space of twenty-four hours, Elisa finds herself without a roof over her head, without a man, without a job and without money. Her best friend Loulou finds her a job - in the brothel run by Dona Jacqueline. And without really being aware of it, Elisa slides into prostitution, which leads her to Barcelona. She falls in love, she is exploited, she gets involved in transvestite gang wars, and meanwhile just dreams of earning enough money for her little beauty salon back home.

Randy M (it) wrote: Best thing about this movie was the visuals for sure. Beautiful to look at - every frame is kinda like a painting. There were a whole lot of twists, I had a hard time keeping up. It just confirms that any time some kids stop in a sleepy town, they end up in some crazy trouble. This guy says it perfectly in his review: "To say it mildly, there's gonna be a lot of dead meat in the Tremo scum pond before the night is out."

William K (br) wrote: All in all not a bad version of King Lear....set in post Alamo Texas of all places. The dialect is also mid 19th century Texan... So if you don' t mind your Lear with a Southwest dialoge, this is well worth a view. Might be a great way to introduce youngsters to the greatness of Shakespeare and Lear.

Jonathan H (jp) wrote: Film showing the tragic events leading up to the hanging of Ruth Ellis (last woman to be hung in Britain). A well crafted, interestingly written film with a great fifties ambience. Worth seeing for the star-making performance from Miranda Richardson as the doomed Ruth. It's frightening how good she is in this.

We forget so casually the importance and positive contribution of anti-establishment groups in our society, even now in times of political disenchantment. Meadows, in my personal opinion, the only kitchen-sink-realist to long linger over unpalatable subject matters; other same-field filmographers likely too cautious of criticism to venture down the unlaundered pit-holes of scream-telling debauchery. 'This is England' all four chapters, the cast maintain a solid unity though they truly are one big family on the whole, despite individual struggles and the dangerous obscure presence of Combo, whose self-admittance to frequent asylum to protect himself and society, (from himself) a poignant twister that Meadows own emotional IQ Oscar-triple worthy!.
