Where do these people come from? I don’t know if I’d be writing about Fish Tank, if Katie Jarvis had not had a row with her boyfriend one day at Tilbury station. Because according to Times Online that’s how she was spotted for her role in Fish Tank. A small gem from London, this surprisingly 1.33 aspect ratio film offers some fresh performances and a little bit of a story as well, although the emphasis appears to be on emotions, performances, feelings and between the lines. And it might also not be the most attractive portrayal of London. But it might give you an idea what it’s like just outside west end. Katie is not the only one responsible of making Fish Tank watchable, but she’s the newcomer which makes her worth the extra mention. You might be interested to hear that Michael Fassbender is also playing a major role. And why would you be interested? Because Michael Fassbender’s also in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. Surely you’ve heard of Quentin Tarantino? And of Inglorious Basterds? The two films may not be very similar but both worth seeing. And both should make you realise that American English is not the only language in the world.
