I finished it yesterday I just had needed to rest.
As a whole I liked it.
It really has a little unnerving atmosphere, lotta tensions in the situations the characters are in right from the beginning, just as you said I also wouldn't call it comfy, and since doesn't really happening much it isn't really exciting. It's a simple story with a handful of characters and lots of talking.
These characters were oh so familiar to me too, their life, how they behave and talk is typical for a certain stratum of society here too. What was unfamiliar is the isolation of the sexes, I mean in a pub grills will play snooker/pool the same mixed with the boys and not just sit around and gossip about them.
I have to praise how the film has some unique ways of handling scenes, like when they talk but the video plays asynchronously, like a bullet-time or something but the most impressive was when the grill told the story what happened with the scarface guy in her flat, when they showed how it played out and she spoke out "from" that situation.
Mousa's character (or how he was called, the hero) felt underdeveloped. What the film shows us previously... I wouldn't think he could do and act like he did at the apex, the main action of the story based on his previous behaviour and speech.
That little actress is so damn fine...
