Great story, great acting, great film !
1 September 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Poor old 'Zorplo' simply doesn't get it. This is a genuinely entertaining film, brilliantly scripted, staged and acted, and it captures perfectly not just the mood of the times but also the madness of teenage obsession. As a 60-something male and admitted Spurs supporter, I loved the film the first time I saw it many years ago and I've seen it several times since, never enjoying it any less. It's a wonderful example of British film making at its best, so much better than the modern crash-bang-wallop offerings which seem to believe that loads of nudity and foul language make up for an absence of any real story, acting, humour or irony. Anyone with a Bruce Willis fixation probably won't like it; anyone who likes genuinely good films certainly will.
