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 (sometimes comedic) gangster action and thought-provoking drama about a guy just out of prison wanting to leave a world of crime but it follows him around.
13 January 2007 | by artylrobbSee all my reviews

When I first heard about Man Dancin', I was told it had parallels to the story of Christ. This worried me slightly because, trying to give a message often becomes contrived, but the amazing thing about this film is, it was able to combine a strong and well-structured storyline with a thought-provoking message. It doesn't faff about trying to please the churched and, in my opinion, paints a pretty believable gang environment.

There is a gripping drama, with great humour and a gut-wrenching finale. It is well-acted, well-directed and WAY under advertised.

In my opinion, a must see! Well done Norman Stone and co! Leah
