Synopsis:
Douglas's magnificent, award-winning Trilogy My Childhood (1972), My Ain Folk (1973) and My Way Home (1978) is the product of an assured, formidable artistic vision. These are some of the most compelling films about childhood ever made. Presented here in a High-Definition restoration, the Trilogy follows Jamie (played with heart-breaking conviction by Stephen Archibald) as he grows up in a poverty-stricken mining village in post-war Scotland. This is cinematic poetry: Although shot in bleak monochrome and featuring minimal dialogue, the warmth and unexpected humour mean the Trilogy brims with clear-eyed humanity, and affection for an ultimately triumphant young boy.

A rare five star rating - Bill Douglas Trilogy review by CM

Spoiler Alert
30/03/2015

This is certainly a masterpiece, assured, unsparing, & heart-scalding, definitely one we'd watch again later. Black & white film, which gives the feel of the times, but also highlights forms & passing brightness.
