Ken Loach would have loved this story
29 January 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This is a pure social topic that you have here. A poor lonely woman, not homeless but unemployed robs a bank to survive. How can anyone stay still, feel nothing in front the distress of this poor woma?. You deal here with a poignant, gripping tale in which the audiences may recognize themselves. The scenes of the lead lady, alone in her small flat, alone with her cats, the only human creatures on earth who don't reject her, those sequences are hard to bear. Yes Ken Loach would have been moved in front this woman in search of dignity, this woman in struggle to survive. At least, I was moved. I love this series, from drama to crime through social elements.
