Another one of those films about poor northerners who have to do something highly unorthodox for money during the closure of whatever doomed industry they work in. Don't start a band lads, don't strip off, don't become ballet dancers, just go to London and get a proper job eh?

All the cliches are here. Thick yorkshire accents, balls to the wall honesty and bossy housewives who are ... read more

I'm going to disagree entirely with my esteemed friend below. This is not another generic 'ard times' film...God knows Frank McCourt has cornered the market on that.

The 'band' part of the film is not a 'hilarious' result of desperate poverty, but a light hearted parrallel to the grim social realtist portrayal of Thatcher's New Right Britain.

The characters in thi... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie but, if I recall it correctly, I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released.

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie but, if I recall it correctly, I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. Basically, it is a rather typical British comedy with a fairly realistic social background. The interesting thing about this movie was also the fact that it was dealing with coal mining, an industry which was already dying 20 years ago and which is now pretty much extinct. In this case, on one hand, you feel bad for all this people who will lose their job and will definitely struggle to find something else, but, on other hand, was it really realistic to keep fighting? Anyway, I liked this combination between humor and realism. The very same year, Ewan McGregor already gave his breakthrough performance in ‘Trainspotting’” read more
