This film is just sad. Some people really have messed up families. And then we wonder why are kids the way they are today? The root of the issue is the household and then society. It's awful to see a parent and child having a relationship where they curse at each other and it's the norm. Seeing your mother having affairs, drinking and passing out, and the only affection she shows is the F word. It's just an unpleasant cycle. Children don't have respect for their parents and parents negligently raise their children.
As for the guy I think he took advantage of the girl. I think the girl was drawn to him because he gave her attention, and showed interest in what she liked. He initiated the sexual advances.
This was very strange. In the beginning it seemed like it was going to be another teen drama movie with a lack of plot and no real point, but it did eventually develop a basic storyline but it still wasn't very good. I probably won't ever watch it again, nor will I reccomend it to anyone. 3/10.
another fantastic british film following a teens turmoil as she self destructs. michael fassbender is brilliant as the mothers boyfriend-some of the scenes are geniunely uncomfortable.it is uncompromising in its disecting of the relationship of working class life between a single mother and daughter, that its hardhitting and close to home. one brilliant scene in the woods is so unsettling you are left with a deep sense of dread as you know something bads going to happen but you dont know what or when. a memorable film that is a must see and a perfect companion to "thirteen" the american movie that deals with similar themes. unmissable.
Fish tank, a gritty, depressing potrayal of a 15 year old girl Mia living with her single mum and gobby little sister in a east london sink estate. Firstly, i was extremely uncomfortable with the paedo undertones in this film, but apart from that the film was ok. I enjoyed the soundtrack it had me bopping my head a few times. The OMG Moment was when
she threw the little girl in the river
and i was thinking to myself, NO!! Don't let this movie go there!!
Very moving film with a sad but realistic look at the social habits of people in council estates all over the uk,ireland and some of europe.well scripted,well cast and well shot.kinda shot like a documentery.the lead role played a great part and i reckon she has a good future in acting.life is hard living in the concrete jungle.9/10
Liked the movie, liked the story, liked the acting. I understand some people find this kinda movies boring, cause you like them or you dont. This movie was just a watch in the hard life of a 15 year old girl. Story wasn't very special, but it was very very realistic. Definitely worth a watch if you like these kinda movies. 4/5
unless you are a gorilla or a donkey, you have to watch this! one of the most deep and briliant movies for many yrs now. pay attention and after the first 20 min, you'll find yourself very atteched to the film and the characters and will make you think about yourself as well.
don't give credit to the few dumb "bad" reviews, you'll lose a diamond
ps. all the actors were great, even the little sister of Mia.. it's amazing what brilliant actors they all were..
This film is an almost unnervingly naturalistic look at a teen's life, in the council estate flats of Essex, England. The main character, Mia (through a fierce performance from Kate Jarvis) provides us a claustrophobic feel of growing up in a place where vulnerable but hard-nosed children are destined to repeat the mistakes of their neglected parents.
Director Andrea Arnold keeps the film grounded in a gritty realism by pulling performances that feels so raw and open that no one appears to be acting. The character development of the protagonist, Mia, is terrific. She allows us to see past her bravado to what she is thinking and it is both complicated and provocative. Her only interest is in dance, in which she is not all that good at, as she's prepares for an audition that she hopes will get her out of her grim Essex life. In the meantime, she finds herself intrigued by her mother's latest boyfriend, Connor (another terrific performance by Michael Fassbender), although she's not sure if it's as a father figure or something else entirely.
Some viewers might find the documentary-style bouncing camerawork a bit unnerving, but the crisp cinematography combined with Arnold's skillful direction gets us on Mia's side from the start; we experience every scene from her limited perspective, including telling glances and tiny observational details.
Overall, I enjoyed this film immensely. There is one more overtly frightening scene later which so intense that we're unable to breathe. At that point, we have no idea which direction it will go and feel as off-balance as the characters when things take such an unexpected turn. A powerful, poignant and beautiful film, I recommend this with 4½ of 5 stars.
Did you not read 'Comments', you just wrote a review of the film which wasn't all entirely true to start with, and there was never a scene in this movie that was so 'intense' it left me 'unable to breath'! Lol, get a grip!
jazzberry - you actually reviewed this well and made me understand better what I just watched - It has just been nominated for a lot of awards in Britain - and I agree there was one point where I went "oh sh**" there towards the end - a pretty good film all in all
It's sad to see how many people didn't get it at all , they hated it and never got touched by its poetry..to me this is one of the great movies of the year and I feel reassured by the fact that like all great gifts it's much better to share it with few.Also is more than evident that this kind of films are not suitable to an american audience just as much as Inglorious Basterds will never be to a british one..it's great to be different sometime ,don't you think? 5/5
Makes me real glad I'm getting older and that I grew up in decent circumstances and was raised by responsible people. Wow, what kids have to go through these days. I turned it off and found something more upbeat.
wow, great acting from the leads, especially the girl. it was a simple movie in terms of cinematography but very complex storyline emotionally. you empathise with Mia yet you want to scream at her at the same time. This movie def made me appreciate my mother, it gets me so angry when people have children that they don't want and treat them like crap. Parents aren't supposed to be selfish assholes. All they do is create more delinquents, and problems in the world. Loved the movie but the end left me hanging. I wish the writers would have told us more about what happened to Mia since we got so involved in her story. I hate when movies end like that! Gotta, admit though, amazing scene
when she accidentally threw Connor's daughter in the water. Def could have changed the whole movie if she had died! Now that would have been quite an ending.
Ha ha WOW she needed like 10 good beatings, and she was just making herself look dumb as hell when she tried to dance
That guy should have knocked her the ***** out and then threw her in the river, and that------can't swim. I hate that girl for everything she did, she was trying harder than the man was to have sex with him, little slut, too bad her mother didn't still send her little keniving ass away, that was so sick and stupid when she pissed on that guys floor, what a complete idiot, that girl looked like a .. zombie too, like DAMMN

I like simple movies like this..to take a look into peoples lives sometimes is really informative and a bit uplifting. It just shows me why we should have more love for each other..5/5 i recommend the watch
Who shot this? Did they use a hand held camera? The camera jumps around so much, I just can't stand it. Why do movie makers try to show us how bad others have it? I had a rough upbringing and did not turn out like this. Not for me at all. 0/5.
