Bittersweet and a real reflection of the times
4 October 2001 | by (cambridge) – See all my reviews

I was working in Liverpool when this was released. The sets were perfect and the characters absolutely credible.

Bleasdale does not present a complete gloom and doom tale and raises smiles frequently throughout the course of the film, but the underlying theme of sectarian divide comes across strongly and effectively and leaves you in no doubt that the purpose is to drive home the futility and despair this kind of hatred causes.

I would recommend anyone to watch this film and it still holds up strongly today, even more so because our differences and the troubles seem no closer to being resolved.

On a final note Joanne Whalley shows us what a fine actress, (with immense potential)she was. Why didn't she progress. Michael Angelis was and still is a marvellous actor.
