5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not A Bloody Horn, It's A Bloody Euphonium, 7 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brassed Off [DVD] (DVD)
I started playing a horn (not a euphonium, though) because of this film.
I am a music-lover, most attached to classical music and especially medieval and renaissance music, and I had never actually listened to brass music (except at the annual Declaration of Christmas Peace in my home town Turku, Finland). As a matter of fact, I thought I didn't like brass music that much. I have always found that when people say they don't like choir music, they actually mean that they never heard a choir singing true to the pitch, little though they may know that. When I saw and heard Brassed Off, I realized that my relationship to brass music has been much the same. I wept when the Grimley Colliery Band (played in the film by a real colliery band) played William Tell and "The Land Of Hope And Bloody Glory" at the end of the film, and after having seen the film over again I borrowed a horn and started practicing. Now a proud horn-owner, I have joined a brass-band. This may not be the handsomest thanks one could give to a movie, as my audiences hitherto have been crying for quite other reasons than I did when watching Brassed Off, but it proves to you that this film widens a person's horizons and that the music in this film is really magnificently played.
