Despite the natural chemistry of Andrew Shim and Ben Marshall the two actors almost came to blows during a scene due to Marshall's obnoxious behavior. Paddy Considine admitted in the DVD commentary he had no problem filming the scene at the seaside where he threatens Marshall's character, saying he "couldn't wait to get his hands on the little shit."

Now here's a real winner right at the start of the year 2000 UK releases. Shane Meadows building on his 24 7:Twenty Four Seven success, adding colour but not disturbing the black and white order. Watching A Room For Romeo Brass was a wonderful experience for me. On one level the majority of the cast played their parts with the provincial rudiments of a Mike Leigh social drama, but intersecting this plateau was the brilliant unfolding of the Morell character, (Paddy Considine), a splendid mixture of Bez and Ewen Bremner, and my vote for the most memorable performance at 2000 at this early stage. Go see.
