5.0 out of 5 stars A time machine back to '83......, 7 May 2008
This review is from: This Is England [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This film is an absolutely perfect snapshot of early eighties Thatcher-era England.
Everything from the dodgy skinheads, the mums haircut, cars, jumpers, clothes attitudes etc, reminds me of being an 11 year old growing up in that era....
People I have watched the film with have all said they had a mum like the young lads in the film...with the Dierdre Barlow glasses and the Brian May shaggy perm.
Many films that attempt to look period simply do not pull it off...I can think of only a handful that do. Fine detail is encapsulated here.
It is a charming, beguiling yet and occasionally ugly and depressing movie that captures something rare in films...character ambivalence.
People who should be nasty appear pleasant when they shouldnt be....a true Shane Meadows hallmark.
This film comes very highly recommended and I would say it is the best British film for a good while.
