Funny and startling
12 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Love it or loathe it, this is an audacious and startling account of working class life during Thatcher's reign in 80s Bradford, North England. Focusing on an illicit menage a trois(which, ironically, the film never explores in any way from a legal perspective) between two schoolgirls and a married-man, the film is a roller-coaster ride of emotions and explosive situations, brought about by the stellar acting from an excellent cast who give their hearts to this low-budget production.

Everything is spot-on - from the naff songs to the hideous fashion. Despite its 80s feel, it is still as funny as it was some twenty years ago. The only problem for viewers of a fainter heart is the lack of morality displayed by any characters - but that in itself is a comment on the degradation caused to the working class by years of ruinous Thatcherite policy.
