Life Is Sweet (1990)
10/10
Bittersweet Simplicity
24 June 2019
Mike Leigh is one of my favorite contemporary directors (right up there with Oliver Assayas). I know he wont be everyone's cup of tea- I'm sure plenty of people will find his stories rather slow and meandering, but I find them humble, charming, wonderfully poignant, often funny, and above all heartfelt and honest. This film, like many of his other films is one that I'll revisit again because of the beauty Leigh finds in simplicity.
