Storyline

Blue Story is a tragic tale of a friendship between Timmy and Marco, two young boys from opposing postcodes. Timmy, a shy, smart, naive and timid young boy from Deptford, goes to school in Peckham where he strikes up a friendship with Marco, a charismatic, streetwise kid from the local area. Although from warring postcodes, the two quickly form a firm friendship until it is tested and they wind up on rival sides of a street war. Blue Story depicts elements of Rapman's own personal experiences and aspects of his childhood. Written by ROC Nation

Good but not amazing
28 November 2019 | by m_m_103817See all my reviews

The irony of 'robertc-42326' complaining about the director being unable to speak the Queen's English, yet has the most atrocious grammar and use of syntax that I have ever seen.

'Blue Story' is a good film. It is somewhat cliched but nothing more than other films of its calibre. I wonder if those calling for the banning and censorship of it want to censor mob films and violent video games too?
