A perfect rendering of growing up in the north of England
Even though I have lived abroad for more than 50 years, this film so perfectly captures the essence of life in northern England in the 50-60's that I cannot decide whether I want to go back there or stay away. Father knows best - no question. You do as you're told! You "tip up" on Fridays. Mother cooking fish on Friday pay day. Oh my gosh, it is all there. There are so many unforgettable scenes of northern working class life it is like a time warp for those of us who lived it.
For anyone in the future who may wonder what life was like back then when there was virtually full employment in the cotton mills, they could do worse than watch this film.
I wish this film were on TV regularly so that I could show my friends what it was like.
