‘A Perfect Day’

perfect_dayThe bureaucracy faced by aid-workers over one day in the Balkans in the 90s whilst trying to solve a humanitarian problem.

Authentic and respectful, A Perfect Day is a minor, engaging if rough-edged and inconsistent film that moves along at a steady pace in the telling of its story – just how will the team remove the dead body from the bottom of the well.

A transnational cast reflects the make-up of the aid team lead by Benico Del Toro (Traffic, Sicario), with welcome humour provided by Tim Robbins (Mystic River, The Shawshank Redemption) and Spanish director Fernando León de Aranoa (Mondays in the Sun, Familia) making his (mostly) English language debut.
