Storyline

Two girls travel to Torquay in Devon from the North of England to work as chamber maids for the summer. They meet two boys, also in Torquay for the summer, one of whom (winstone) is entered in the "round the bay" swimming race. They have a run in with a gang of Scottish lads, one of whom (morrison) is also entered into the swimming race. Various confrontations ensue with Morrison and his friends framing Winstone for a robbery in a chemists shop. Winstone is arrested just as he is about to start the race. He escapes from the police and follows Morrison into the water, catches him up, forces him to confess to framing him and then goes on to win the race. Written by Chris Duddle

Loved the movie
15 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw it, and loved it. OK, so it was not classic, but the soundtrack was ace and the "freedom" theme was bang on. There was a Guinness ad of some guy swimming the harbour ("it take 98 seconds to pour the perfect pint of Guinness") and it reminded me of this movie - sort of Quadrophoenia-meets-Please Sir - and it was very much a 1978 movie, especially if you did the south coast That Summer. I bought the sound track on CD, loaned it to someone and never saw it again. Best music collection ever. Ray Winstone was the star even then. I met him when he was making Robin Hood at HTV in Bristol - I expect he still remembers. I expect the movie will be like an early Dr Who - great at the time, but crappy in retrospect, but, like Warriors - I loved it!
