A Good Story Well Told
15 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I believed this movie, and it left me with a few tears. A ten for me, it is that good.

The setting of late Thatcherite South Wales brings a dour realism to the fast moving and almost glamorous beginning of this movie. The journey you'll be taken on at best involves falling over and badly grazing yourself. But there's humour too, and even joy if you keep your mind open.

The acting is great all round, with believable characters who interact realistically. Jamie and his dad, Charlie, are centre stage, and both performances are superb.

The production is perfect. It thoroughly captures the personal situation, the era, the location. The story is told at a good pace, though yes, its low key and British. I think some non Brits may find the accents a little difficult at times, but you don't need to hear every word to get absorbed in the story.

The story is simple but rich. As one other reviewer suggests, its worth watching it twice, or at least watch the start again - thats a must.
