One of the best of the new wave british pictures. A marvel and great performances by Courtenay and Christie not to mention the supporting characters. Great cinema.

Agree with James - great cinema, and the source material is great as well.

I've probably raved about this before but if you are ever in Bradford, Yorkshire you can visit the Undercliffe Cemetrey, one of the locations:
