Breaking and Entering is an unusual film.
Will and Sandy are two architects working on a major urban renewal project in
the King's Cross section in London. The area is unsafe and ready for such a
project. Will and Sandy move their offices into a nearby vacant warehouse.
Will has to deal with constant
burglaries at his new office. One night, he saw Miro trying to break into the
building. He chased Miro to his run down apartment block and watched him return
home to his mother, Amira, a Bosnian immigrant who makes a living tailoring
clothes. Soon, Will 'meet' Amira and they begin an affair. And Amira learns
that Will holds the key of her son's future. How far will this mother go to
protect her son? Breaking and Entering is a very interesting film, it is almost
entirely character driven. Tis is not a bad thing although in the film we are
exposed to a story or action driven.
Anthony Minghella, the director, creates
some of the most believable, interesting characters these actors have ever
played. It is almost painful to watch them on their journey. Each of the
characters makes decisions affecting how their lives will play out, or change
and these decisions and actions affect the story. The characters aren't
reacting to the story. They are changing it.
