One of the best Ken Loach's film. A story everyone can identify with, putting oneself in the protagonist's same blue suede shoes
on 8 September 2015
One of the best Ken Loach's films. A perfect mix of comedy and drama, passion for football and social commitment, fantasy and realism.
Looking for Eric sound genuine because it tells a story where football represents a distraction from the bleak and miserable reality and helps people carry on, but also because Erica Cantona is not just a football star, but embodies the popular side of this sport, who was born from people and for the people, and cannot just live in a golden cage.
Here more than ever Loach shows his ability for storytelling, being compelling and entertaining at the same time, because his rebellion to the System can't be imagined without a reasonable share of irony.
Looking for Eric is, therefore, a story that everyone can identify with or, saying it with the main character's words, to put oneself in his blue suede shoes...
