REVIEWS

Review by Chris Wilkin (posted on 10-Jan-2008)

Without doubt the best british film ever made. Solid storyline, solid acting, solid directing. The detail within the film is a complete study in british (london) social history. Look out for the name of the dairy in Stonhouse Street, Clapham which appears on a milk bottle standing on the door stop. I knew that dairy and remember Stonhouse Street as the home of a dear friend of mine. The shots of Clapham Common pond are delightful - an area I knew well as a child. I can go on watching this film for ever.
