Sorry we miss you review – Ken Roach struck at zero time in England | Peter Bradshaw's Movies | film

DKen Loach and screenwriter Paul Laverty are the heart of modern England, a zero-hour vassalage and service-economic abundant land-the tradition of Loach's previous works and a vigorous passion that came from a country reaching back Came back to Khan through. To the bike thief of Vittorio De Sica. They are fierce, open, angry, ironic and undecorated about modern important issues that do not hear any meaning in the news.

Like previous film Daniel Blake, it depicts the human cost of economic development that we are encouraged to accept as a fact of life. Like Daniel Blake, it has been practically studied in many interviews, rich in details. But I think this movie is better. There was more light and shade in the progress of the story, and more things the cast could collectively do, more dramatically varied and digested. I bumped into the solar plexus by this film and was erased by the simple honesty and integrity of the performance. But my feelings overshadowed some toxic political issues. Of this, more after a while.

The drama lost all of Newcastle's former construction worker Ricky (played by Chris Hitchen) and the opportunity for building construction and mortgages after the 2008 economic collapse. He is a bit temper and affectionate. I like drinks Now he is renting with his contract wife and caregiver wife Abbie (Debbie Honeywood), who needs to visit dozens of people with disabilities, seniors and vulnerable people to eat, bathe and “chin up” every day. Eerie full version of maternal intimacy. This is the amount of work she has not had time to meet two children all day long. They're Seb (Rhys Stone), his smart sister Liza Jane (Katie Proctor), an artistic talent but a troubled teenager who has problems with the authorities.

Ricky's friend persuades him to make some nice little money, a van driving for a big delivery company. But Maloney (Ros Brewster), a difficult manager for the company, told Brooke that he would be hired as a freelancer with no existing employment benefits to Ricky, who was the number one bullet. He needs to buy or rent his van or rent it from the company at terrible rates every day and meet strict goals for delivery. These are anxiously set by the most important scanners called "guns". Of particular importance is the "predecessor," a customer who paid extra for the correct shipping slot. Maloney sounds like "Let's take cardboard out of concrete!" When all the packaging is loaded. But Ricky doesn't have time to go to the bathroom and needs to carry an empty plastic bottle. The disease is not simply immortal, but weakens him. And Maloney did not tell him everything about the insurance situation.

Ricky convinces Abbie to sell the cars he needs for his job, allowing him to buy a van that can save him from financial pain. He is employed or "onboarded" in the ominous terms of the company. Laverty creates a subtle resonance that caring caring copper has a great family for Seb and "must take it onboard".

Inevitably, inevitably, Ricky gets into trouble when it means taking time off work due to general human needs, and another creepy company jargon borrowed from the Bureau of Labor and Pension, the "sanction" system You have to work harder with the company getting more and more debt. Abbie also has a zero time contract and you can see how the patient is being neglected. There is a heartbreaking lovely scene in Honeywood. Their family life and relationship with their children become more and more toxic. When Ricky realizes where the financial responsibility for his product is really, it's even terrible. The cast establishes us a tragic situation with simple dignity and openness.

And here is my disturbance. Many will consider this film not as a silly old Brexit that only cares about people in the London Bubble, but as a depiction of the real problems that people face. Does the director feel this way? I don't know, but I can say that the European Union is a modern employment nursery school, and elsewhere it's a place where working people find more cynicism, cruelty, exploitation, economic isolation and poverty. This gorgeous movie will focus on the mind.

Sorry. It was screened at the Cannes Film Festival and will be released in the UK on November 1st.
