A B&W vision of how Britain (liverpool) used to be. Just watched it, funny! In fact, it's full of little gems so I won't spoil it, it's football themed but it's about working class people or ordinary people if you like. The characters ring true and you could swear you've been meeting all these people all your life. It's not often I laugh out loud at TV or films but this one had a few of these moments. Great! I wish I'd taped it.
I does help that I come from Liverpool and can just about remember the 60's, though I'd have observed them tied to my mothers apron strings.
For anyone else older than me, it'd be like a trip down memory lane.
Ken Loach? Well this is Ken early in his career portraying the working-class, his next filmn being 'Kes'.
