Reviews

Gritty drama set in modern-day Glasgow. Jimmy Kerrigan (former EastEnders actor Alex Ferns) returns to his family home on a tough estate after being detained at Her Majesty's pleasure for nine years on gun-running charges. He finds that both the city and the people he knew have changed irrevocably - his mother is dying, and his brother has acquired a heroin habit. The film charts Jimmy's struggle - at times misguided - to come to terms with his new environment, straighten himself out his lifestyle and help those around him as best he can.

This is a gripping tale of a battle between good and evil, a passion play acted out in grim Glasgow.The hero is released from prison after a sentence for gun-running. Back home he resists the approaches of his old gang boss and his henchman, a corrupt senior detective. His brother is on drugs, his mother dying in hospital.His parole involves being under the care of a priest who gets him acting in a passion play. Soon our hero is exposing the hypocrisy of his fellow players and doing battle with his old gang over their pimping and other crimes. Here is a good cast with some very well known actors. The plot has some surprising twists with sparkling humour. My one criticism is that the standard of Glaswegian dialogue makes Taggart sound like received pronunciation. Non Scots need subtitles. But this is a well made film with a strong presentation of the continuing conflict between good and evil at the heart of the Christian message. Here we have a Judas and an unlikely Messiah. Only one question remains. Why the title?

This film inteligently explores the passion story, by reflecting on the impact it could have in a modern day setting. The choice of setting, Glasgow, is well used and unnervingly accurate at times.

The film in essence is a classic gangster romp, whose hero, the ex-convict seeking a fresh start, refreshingly does not fall back into his old ways, but does eventually pay the price for his decisions.

In some ways, this film is almost a British version of "American History X" in the sense that it highlights problems of modern Britain. The distinction is that here, the solution is born from the inspiration of the biblical account of Jesus as a rebel figure in history.

I highly recommend this film, maybe the strongest recommendation I can give though, is anecdotal. I decided to pick this film up at 1.45am after having seen it on TV, by the time I had clicked the buy button, somone else had come along and bought the second hand copy I wanted :)

Format: DVD
This is a very fine film, with a strong cast and some excellent performances -- though it has to be said that some are playing so true to type they could have acted their parts in their sleep. (James Cosmo's crime boss springs to mind) Alex Fern shines as Jimmy Kerrigan, the ex-gangster who emerges from a 9 year prison term a changed man. He returns home to Glasgow, presented as a ruined city of chaos and crime, determined to work through his probation and then emigrate to the peace of a Greek island. A catholic priest (the always watchable Tom Georgeson) offers him the opportunity to escape his prescribed anger management classes by joining the parish am dram group who are working on the annual passion play. Strong echoes of 'Jesus of Montreal' here.
Inevitably, he takes the role of Jesus and the play becomes the focus of a campaign to rid the community of crime bringing Jimmy into conflict with members of the group, his old boss and the corrupt local police.
Some may find the religious imagery of the film - it is self-conciously a parable - a little heavy-handed, but I thought as an exploration of the Christian themes of sacrifice and atonement the film worked very well. Some notes jarred, especially the rather utopian and over-optimistic picture of a community ridding itself of its criminal oppressors, but despite this I'd say this is a film which deserves to be much better known and I highly recommend it.

-the film_
When Jimmy Kerrigan is released from jail after 9 years inside, everyone expects him to fall back into his old ways. But Jimmy's changed, says all he wants to do is open a bar on a Greek island once his parole is up. Problem is, nobody believes him - not at least his former gangland boss, Donnie McGlone and Jimmy's old adversary, Detective Inspector Walter Villers.
They both think Jimmy's up to no good, branching out on his own.
Enter Father Gabriel Flynn, the man in charge of Jimmy's anger management classes. He sees something in Jimmy nobody else does and to the amazement of all asks him to play Jesus in the church's annual passion play; faced with the prospect of endless anger management classes, Jimmy agrees. It's a decision which is to have repercussions throughout the entire community and to throw McGlone and Villers' cosy world into turmoil. Jimmy Kerrigan is back alright - with a vengeance..
what can I SAY?
There is a gripping drama, with great humour and a gut-wrenching finale. It is well-acted, well-directed and WAY under advertised.
the amazing thing about this film is, it was able to combine a strong and well-structured storyline with a thought-provoking message.
The characters in this film are very good with a top mix of funny and serious and some time dark this Truly great cinema
((Man Dancin'))

Another outstanding film, less known in Scotland than anywhere else in Europe for a reason only the Scottish Media can explain. (The film is more widely known as "Kerrigan's Passion", but the title was changed to "Man Dancin'" for its Scottish release).

The story focuses on Jimmy's return to Glasgow after a time spent in jail in Ulster.

Realising that he has been caught up in petty gangster life, he uses his intelligence to try and rescue his brother from the same fate. On the way he saves a few other souls.

A movie full of intelligent and thought-provoking symbolism.

Thoroughly recommended by myself, a great fan of Scottish films. This is one of the best, and without a doubt, the most under-celebrated.
