Dirty Pretty Things, DVD


After a stint in Hollywood, Stephen Frear returns to his trademark genre in this gritty thriller about the lives of immigrant workers in London.

Highly educated Nigerian, Okwe (Chiwetel Ejiofor) can only find work in London as a taxi driver or a hotel concierge and shares a room with another illegal immigrant Senay (Audrey Tatou), who works as a maid in the hotel.

They both live in fear of being caught and deported and when one night, whilst working on the front desk, Okay is asked to check on a broken lavatory, he discovers a grisly secret.

But when he tells his boss about what he saw, Okay is blackmailed to keep quiet and finds himself and Senay being lured into the shady underworld of illegal immigration.
