Aro Favourite Dirty Pretty Things


UK 2002, 93 minutes
Dir. Stephen Frears
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama, Suspense/Crime

Topics: Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: A tightly-wound, satisfying British melodrama about illegal immigrants in London that find themselves exploited by a medical scam.

Chiwetel Ejiofor is a unique and commanding presence in the central role of a Nigerian refugee doctor relegated to driving a London minicab while Audrey Tatou equally impresses as his Turkish confidante, in a role at the opposite end of her popular image as AMELIE. Presenting a sympathetic view of the immigrant experience, this tests the ethical fibre of its characters to nail-biting and believable effect.
