Storyline

After serving a jail term, tough Jimmy Kerrigan returns to his derelict Glasgow quarter, wanting a better, legal life for himself and his loved-ones. Not easy, as brother Terry is addicted and their ma gravely ill. Lenient parole terms leave him in charge of unorthodox Father Gabriel Flynn, who recruits him for the parish passion play, which he modernizes into an attack on crime and corruption. Drug baron Donnie McGlone, in league with the local police chief, wants everything back to normal, whatever it takes. Written by KGF Vissers

A look back after 12 years
2 January 2015 | by f_d_eSee all my reviews

12 years ago Man Dancin' came out and it was luckily enough an amazing film about how much involvement there was in Gangland Glasgow. Many people working on the film as extras came from a couple of the locations used. However it is looking back on it now much much of the film can be used to describe Glasgow's culture now. Having been involved with the film it is remarkable how well crafted Sergio Casci's writing played to convey Glasgow's historical problem with Religious sectarianism and how much has been done to reduce this. Another brilliant craft is and was the usage of actors who have since been stalwarts in Scottish television. Frank Gallagher is the undisputed and underrated actor in the whole production and his verve to provide comic relief in a somewhat serious film about life and death proves invaluable to the audience's experience of Glasgow's culture.
