Best British tragi-comedy
22 October 2004 | by Dizzdy2000-1See all my reviews

This film has to be one of the best British northern tragi-comedies ever made! As I come from Manchester I find this film extremely believable. Honestly people live in that fashion now in 2004!! I would be most grateful if anybody could put me in the right direction to get the music from the film. You know the music Bob plays in his car? "C'st si bon c'est si bon, c'est la vie c'est la vie" You know the one I mean! If you can help, please e-mail me. Dizzdy2000@fsmail.net. Thanks. I love this film so much and so do my friends. In fact we quote to each other all the time! You may think we are sad but I think we are funny........like the film.
