Daddy's Little Girls (2007)
Half Decent Film Why No British Release???
I saw this film recently at the Black Film Maker International Film
Festival here in London.
Not at all like Perry's previous films which have both been premiered
at the festival in the last few years. Instead of broad Christian
Cross-Dressing Gun Totting Comedy, what we have here is a gentle
romantic drama with a smattering of jokes here and there.
At got to say it wasn't to bad though I have to admit I preferred the
Meadea films. The performances were OK especially the leading actors
Union & Elba. The story is a bit hackneyed but I guess that's the cynic
in me. You kind of knew exactly how the film was going to end from the
open credits. The audience I saw it with loved it.
That got me thinking why can't you see Perry's work in the UK other
than at the BFM Film Festival. Why not release the films on DVD, any
visit to Dalston/Brixton/Harlesden in London will tell you that's
there's a great illicit trade in Perry's films.
Anyway, if you like a undemanding and somewhat unoriginal romantic
drama this is just the thing for you.
