Being a scouser and an orange girl I really enjoyed this film. The thick urban decay, the harsh accents and the chill in the air and in the characters was very identifiable.
Boy, I watched it again last night and had a little cry, just something about.. well, if any one else would like to join in here I will finish my tale :)
Fyi, Bernard Hill, yes Theoden King (LOTR TT / ROTK) is in this film, I wonder if he is still proud of it?
A masterpiece of cinematography and story, telling of urban Liverpool in the middle 80's.
