This film has someting special about it and i cant put a finger on what it is, its always been one of my all time favourite british films and bob hoskins gives one of his finest performances, i also love the genesis sountrack and thats a part in the film that sticks in my mind even after all these years. Robbie coltrane was excellent in this movie along with michael caine and cathy tyson, also a cameo role with joe brown was a nice touch, i purchased this movie on amazon instant video and the picture quality was superb and it was in HD as well which makes it an excellent addition to my video library. Superb!

Hoskins excels in one of his early starring roles as George, minding a top class hooker with inevitable connections to evil crime boss and seedier side of sex trade. 25 years on this film is still as fresh as when it first appeared; Michael Caine plays the East End villain with aplomb and Cathy Tyson is brilliant as a high class tart with a gentle streak. Early and very competent outing too for Robbie Coltrane as George's confidant. Set in contemporary (1980's) London so scenery is a little dated but the content is timeless and so well executed that this does not detract from the experience one bit. For 106 minutes anyone old enough to remember the Eighties will feel as though they have been transported back in time. Some critics have described the film as kitsch and it is true that the characters come across as lacking depth but I feel that this reflects the shallow and desperate nature of the underworld it depicts. This is an excellent example of British film noir and a classic of its time.

I think it is a very good film and Bob Hoskins and Michael Cain where good in it. And it is very thought provoking drama.
