Great insight into human nature.
2 March 2002 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed Alf Garnet' stories for their insight into human nature. This film combined many aspects of Alf's thoughts, weaknesses, humour and humanity. It also satirises the 'tired' and relentlessly mundane family life of so many working class people. Pity the film is not available to purchase.
