Fans of 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' will love this film. Not only does it star Jimmy Nail and Timothy Spall (and Bill Nighy who featured in the most recent series) it was also written by Ian la Frenais and Dick Clement.
The narrative follows 70's rock band 'Strange Fruit' making a comeback after disbanding 20 years previously, on, as you could describe, not the most cordial of terms. The keyboard player, (portrayed by Stephen Rea) comes up with the idea after bumping into the son of the promoter of an old rock festival (during which the band originally parted company) wishing them to perform at such a rock festival once more. After many a trial and tribulation, they eventually manage to make a successful return.
This film makes for very entertaining viewing. It is both humourous, heart warming and accompained by an excellent soundtrack, many songs of which were performed by the actors themselves.
I recommend this film to anyone with a love of British films, British humour and "all that 70's excess".
