Storyline

"From the moment I was born I cried for a month..." Eighteen years on, and Justin is no nearer the truth. And in a world that increasingly doesn't care, maybe just simply relying on friendship is not enough? Especially with friends like Billy, Sean and Tommy. Set amongst the backdrop of the towering, concrete-clad estates of south London 'Zebra Crossings' blends a diverse mixture of characters that all share one thing in common: The incredible loneliness of living alongside 7 million other people. Blending the surreal, and very real, we take an intense journey in search of friendship, belief and religion. With a lacklustre father and estranged mother, Justin's only source of perennial control comes from an unlikely source, his bed-ridden sister Suzanne. But Justin needs is a real mentor, a father figure, someone who can provide guidance before it's all too late. In steps Marcus, unlike anyone Justin has ever known before, calm, soft, assured - but does he want something from Justin? ... Written by Sam Holland

take the best bits of classic menu's and add a light garnish
3 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

zebra crossing is simply an amazing film, the grit of harry brown with the sleek style of lock stock, slightly typical British gangster plot but brings the top traits of all the greats together in perfect unison. you'll be hooked from start to finish and that's another joy, it's short and snappy but manages to carry on some memorable dialogue that will keep you smiling for weeks after,

some superb sequences and genuine cast make this easily the best flick of the year so far, but it is only February, the one flaw is the story is something we've all see before, also i worry that being black and white will put some people off but for those that do see it, you will love it
