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
As someone who has listened to Rapman's music since 2014, I am the target audience for this film and if you are too then you will enjoy it. However it is far from without its flaws. Alot has been made of the fact that this is a majority 1st time actors and that Rapman himself has no formal or directing or screenwriting and while at some points they will impress you, this will also show negatively through some inconsistent writing/acting at times and low budget making for mostly cheesy effects. Both of the stars put in decent performances, Micheal Ward in particular has really impressed me so far this year in this and Top Boy. As someone who watched the original blue story as well, I'm not sure that the story changes are better and while I enjoyed the added parts of the story they did not add a huge amount.
For the target audience like me this is a high 6 (rounded up to a 7)
For the casual viewer this would be a high 5
