Really? I watched it on TVO when it first came out in 2000 and quite liked it.
It is slow in spots and there are too many peripheral characters and side-stories that tend to gum things up from time to time. But overall I enjoyed it. Oh well... emoticon

It's the same movie. I wounder that it has won so many nominations.

Still it didn't work for me. The problem wasn't that it was a slow movie and that there are a lot of peripheral characters. The problem was that the dialogues are without joke and nothing was there to faszinate me over a longer time. I just talked to two of my German friends who have seen this movie too. Everyone switched it up just like me. I wounder if it would work in the original language.

The humour is subtle and dark.. and the dialogue is pretty strange ... verging on riddle-speak
Maybe something is lost in translation..

In the German translation you'll find some silly sentences like in a bad comedy. The syntax was strange. Until the second part of the second episodes there wasn't something like a riddle-speak.

The story had at some parts a subtle darknes. But that was in contrast to the words the actors have spoken.

I'm sure a lot things got lost in translation. What a pitty.

Yeh.. that's a shame.. because I found it to be a pretty good series.
Some excellent performances.
I have it in AVI format backed up on an external drive somewhere.

But her fortune cannot rival Sara's generosity. Soon she is the favorite of the school.

Everybody sing. Everybody dance. Or, failing that, everybody step in place during the famed Singin’ in the Rain finale. A torrent of talent takes the screen in the first all-star Talkie Era showcase of heretofore silent-screen players. Much of The Hollywood Revue of 1929 was filmed in the graveyard shift so that the stars’ daytime shooting schedules would not be disrupted.

Fans in Los Angeles and New York City were treated to movie marquees that included live showgirls. Once in the theater, they were treated to the on-screen delights of Joan Crawford singing and Charlestoning, Laurel and Hardy clowning, Norma Shearer and John Gilbert spoofing the Bard (in color!), Buster Keaton stonefacing and much more in a historic menagerie of fun.

Life Is Sweet (1991)

Cast:
Alison Steadman ... Wendy
Jim Broadbent ... Andy
Claire Skinner ... Natalie
Jane Horrocks ... Nicola
Stephen Rea ... Patsy
Timothy Spall ... Aubrey, Regret Rien Owner
David Thewlis ... Nicola's Lover
Moya Brady ... Paula, Aubrey's Cook
David Neilson ... Steve the Plumber
Harriet Thorpe ... Bunnikins' Customer
Paul Trussel ... Chef where Andy Works
Jack Thorpe-Baker ... Nigel

Description:
Just north of London live Wendy, Andy, and their twenty-something twins, Natalie and Nicola.
Wendy clerks in a shop, leads aerobics at a primary school, jokes like a vaudevillian, agrees to waitress at a friend's new restaurant and dotes on Andy, a cook who forever puts off home remodelling projects, and with a drunken friend, buys a broken down lunch wagon.
Natalie, with short neat hair and a snappy, droll manner, is a plumber; she has a holiday planned in America, but little else.
Last is Nicola, odd man out: a snarl, big glasses, cigarette, mussed hair, jittery fingers, bulimic, jobless, and unhappy.
How they interact and play out family conflict is the film's subject.
