Mike Leigh's cinema
Happy-Go-Lucky is a British fiction film with atleast two great Bringlish performances, one being the main character and another being her driving instructor (with whom she is acquainted since much before her first cum last lesson with him). The last shot of the film is nice and long, and must have been executed after very good preparation. The motion of the frame during it is started by a rightward track, followed by a leftward pan in combination with the rightward track, followed by a continuation of the leftward pan, followed by a upward track in combination with a slight downward pan to keep the subjects in focus.
