Extensively liked this film. Entertaining,useful and plenty of familiar faces.

Manages to be very funny and deeply moving. Danny’s famed speech at the conclude of the movie is likely one particular of the biggest film speeches of all time.

Hello enjoy the film i am happy with the purchase it arrived on time great support.

“Manages to be incredibly funny and deeply moving, A bloody must-have, A one off brilliant British ensemle piece just first rate and if it “

It can be 1 of those that i observe every few years. Amusing, unhappy & a reminder of nonetheless one more market missing. Also a testament to the political weather of the day.

I adore this dvd of the iconic film ‘brassed off’. Competitively priced and was shipped extremely speedily. I very advise this seller.

A 1 off good british ensemle piece just very first fee and if it was not that it rightly has a go at thatcher’s britian would recieve far more praise than it will get.

The movie is set in yorkshire, a region in the northern aspect of england. In this region a tragedy took put: the yorkshire market lived of coal. But competitors from other sources of electrical power produced this coal appear pricey. From the million of miners in 1925 the selection fell radically to these days fewer than 15,000. And the issue was not that the pits or mines weren’t successful any more. Most of them could carry up coal for about 10 a long time. The motion picture tells two stories linked with every other: initially, the story of a brass band, which is likely to a level of competition and 2nd the tale of a city whose pit is going to be shut. It is established in the imaginary town of grimley with a nevertheless successful pit. You see – substantially staged – how the miners have to go through less than the pit closure.

It has humour, touching, emotive moments and loads of nostalgia (specifically if you had been brought up with brass banding, like i was). It has grim times, bringing alive the moments that this film is set in, but similarly has moments that will (a cliche) heat your coronary heart and make you realise the significance of local community.

A timeless basic that still can carry tears as a result of the laughter. Bought this for a mate and she loves it as well.

    As a one-time player in a brass band i absolutely loved this film with the late, great pete postlethwaite as the indomitable conductor/bandmaster. The soundtrack provided by the grimethorpe colliery band is the thing which gives the film its authenticity.

    Main story is a colliery brass band winning a national competition just as the mine is being shut down. Yes, but set against the bitter struggles as collieries across the land disappeared. Good movie, revives feelings of the 80’s.

    1. My husband saw this film years ago and i wanted to get it for him. He enjoyed watching it again. It is a hard hitting but human story about a pit village in the 1980’s miners strike. Not suitable for young children to watch.

    In my humble opinion there is nothing to dislike about this film. The main characters are superbly presented by the fine cast led by the brilliant and sadly missed pete postlethwaite. The real band members who appear in the film are all stars in their own right and it is an education to see them perform. The storyline about the dark days of the mining industry is well presented. Lastly there is a small bonus waiting to be collected. You might get to like brass band music.

    1. If you like tragic comedy with a message, great actors and script then your like this one.

    Just after the miners strike the industry was wound down. Music/sound effects supplied by brass bands. It’s up one minute and down the next.
