Trivia

The film's certificate was changed in the UK from 12 to 15. This is rumoured to come from a very brief appearance of the word "cunt" in graffiti, which might have been missed by the BBFC originally. This is also one of the first appearances of the word in mainstream cinema. See more »

You can see Skinheads portrayed without prejudice
31 March 2004 | by (Malmö, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It´s a social realistic film. We follow some kids in the late teens, some in school and some at work. There is not really a story or the story isn't that important. Boy meets girl meets no acceptance from home so they run away. They team up with Bronco Bullfrog who has escaped from borstal. The best thing about the film is that we can follow normal working class kids in East End in London during the era of the Skinheads. So we get a non political view from skinheads, even if you may call them Suedeheads or whatever subcategory you like. There is no actors in the film, everybody is handpicked from the streets. The "bad" acting helps the real feeling. But you could always asked more from the director regarding the tightness of the film. I rated it 7 of 10.
