Classic of its era,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Up The Junction [DVD] (DVD)
Very much a curiosity piece these days, what with nearly every sentence starting "'Ere!" and many a "bleedin'" this and "bleedin'" that, plus the working classes are seen through very romantic rose tinted glasses. But there is a certain period charm to proceedings. Adrienne Posta steals the film, so it's a shame that she, and many others seen here, had careers that lasted only a few years more. Suzy Kendall was perhaps slightly miscast, too, as a twenty-one year old as, good as she is, she does look much older. All in all, though, cringeworthy pub singing scene aside, a superb and relatively rare full colour British film of the "kitchen sink" oeuvre.
The description of the film needs changing, however. Blink and you will miss Susan George.
