Product Description

In this, modern day,"Death of a Salesman" the British Willy Lowman, played by Ricky Tomlinson, is trying desperately to hold onto the "American" dream of the "he-who-dares-wins" philosophy of latter 20th century Britain. He is failing miserably, unlike his prospering neighbours, the Chapmans (played by Phil Daniels and Rachel Fielding), who consider him and his wife inferior. Ricky Tomlinson and Marion Bailey are excellently cast as the Peaches - he as Harold, the down-on-his-luck double glazing salesman, she as Jean, his nice but nutty wife. When the family's debts get out of hand the husband refuses to give up his Englishman's castle to the Bailiffs, implicitly believing that he should have something to show for his life's work. With his back against the wall, this follow-all-the-rules guy decides that for once he is going to rebel! The results are both hilarious and tragic.

A brilliantly written and acted piece that I can only call a docudrama with comedic elements. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was because the documentary side of it gives away what is going to happen and ruins what could have been a shock ending. One part of it halfway through was a little emotional as they were watching old home movies, i wont say why though so I don't spoil anything. There are quite a few funny moments in here that made me laugh out loud, normally I can only manage a small chuckle with comedy, and also some touching drama moments that make you feel for some of the characters. I didn't much like the parts where we saw Ricky Tomlinsons dreams but these were few and far between however I did like the parts where we saw what was going through his mind to 'make things better', these are also few and far between. I will finish by saying that when I say documentary this is also scripted so it's not a pure documentary with everyday citizens, it is the people explaining their actions but as I say they do give massive spoilers as to what's going to happen next.
