East Is East  

East is East is an enjoyable comedy drama about an Asian family living in Manchester in the 70's.

It is very well written and played (especially Omi Puri, who plays the overbearing father). It touches on issues of culture differences, racism etc. without getting too bogged down with them, which if they were allowed to would ruin the light-heartedness of the film.

That said though, some later scenes of unnexpected domestic violence do stumble into the film, and don't quite fit.

Also, the theatrical roots of the film do show a little too much, as we rarely go further than their back yard, except for an amusing trip to Bradford.
