A really nice film - really deserves an outing on DVD!
18 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have a VHS copy of this but it is a poor transfer. The film (originally seen on TV) is well worth seeing with an interesting and at times quite moving plot and fine performances, especially by Bob Hoskins, Warren Mitchell and Joseph Spano. It is surprising that it never seems to have been repeated either on TV or in the cinema. Far worse TV films seem to be dragged up from obscurity for a DVD release and I'm amazed this one hasn't been given the same treatment and transferred to DVD, it could become a cult classic! The performances of a host of Jewish character actors portraying the 'little Vienna' created in the East End of London (and again in the Australian Outback)is both amusing and reminds us that that the Nazis may have been (so far) the most egregious and extreme race haters but they didn't (and don't) have a monopoly when it comes to incomprehension and hostility towards asylum seekers!
