Nie mogłam oprzeć się wrażeniu, że zdecydowanie więcej tu dramatyzmu (sporo też akcentów humorystycznych), niż grozy i napięcia, a problemy społeczne przesłaniają nieco sensacyjną intrygę. Ale w tym przypadku nie jest to zarzut, bo powstała "mieszanka gatunkowa", kt... read more

Okwe, a kind-hearted Nigerian doctor, and Senay, a Turkish chambermaid, work at the same West London hotel. The hotel is run by Senor Sneaky and is the sort of place where dirty business like drug dealing and prostitution takes place. However, when Okwe finds a human heart in one of the toilets, he uncovers something far more sinister than just a common crime

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2016 (33 movies items)

" Showtime- 1hr. 36min. First Viewing While there are a few strong moments, mostly thanks to an excellent cast, I would venture to say that Dirty Pretty Things has not aged particularly well. What was presumably "shocking" once now feels exploitative and unnecessary. It's okay, but the movie could've used a good deal more subtlety to really hit. Monthly Wesley AwardBest Supporting Actress- Sophie Okonedo "
