OP- do you have the diamond shaped key with the two unlock buttons on it? The upper button, above the BMW logo, is the hatch release. Does it not open when you push it? If you have two keys, try both. Also, how about the hatch release under the dash? On left hand drive cars, it's next to the door, look next to the right door on your car.

Does the remote unlock work for your doors? I know it sounds simple, but I like to start with easy stuff. I would make sure the key works properly before going more in depth.
To add to this, all the doors are unlocked, open and close the rear hatch securely. Then try to open the glass with the button underneath the small handle next to the wiper arm. If that doesn't work, it's possible that the mechanism is jammed.
