Gritty brit flick
27 June 2008 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland UK) – See all my reviews

Some excellent and vivid location work around Bethnal Green in London is the setting for this slice of "kitchen sink" life.It portrays a family struggling to keep their heads above the water as the man of the house Bernard Lee loses his job for being too mouthy at work, he then takes to the streets as an escapologist in order to get money for food on the table, quite often embarrassing himself and his family in the process. Meanwhile his son played by 60ts singing star Mike Sarne is fed up being on the breadline and turns to local gangster John Slater to do a robbery at the factory he works at, it goes wrong but he manages to get out of it in a hurry, meanwhile Sarne's love interest played by the lovely Rita Tushingham certainly is'nt an easy catch. All in all a really good slab of realism directed by the excellent Basil Dearden. Recommended.
