wonderful stuff
13 May 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A truly wonderful film, based on a new romantic theme (of the early 80's) but taking place 15 years later, as the band is black-mailed into re-uniting for one final appearance. It even manages to put that "shaddup you face" (that kept Ultravox's Vienna from being number 1) in its place. Several cameo appearances from people who were famous at the time (Simon Le Bon, Gary Numan and more), it all adds to the film's feel-good factor. Martin Clunes and Neil Morrissey star in roles that are distinctly different to Men Behaving Badly but are certainly no less fun to watch. Jane Horrocks also plays a strong part and once again shows her versatility. My only regret is that there's still no DVD available - come on, whoever you are - get one on the market!
