Good little nostalgic 1970s British film
- Cemetery Junction review by PV
I really enjoyed this. It's a light, nostalgic, semi-autobiographical film by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant - but it's nothing like The Office (thank goodness!). There are some lovely scenes - I liked Gervais as the father and the racist grandmother! And, despite being too young for the 70s, I loved the music! Sure, some was from the 80s in a 70s movie - but a little poestic licence is fine. All in all, this is way funnier than most Hollywood comedies. Not perfect or spectacularly funny, but well worth renting.

If your a fan of the Gervais/Merchant writing partnership,you will not be disappointed.
How this film did not do more at the box office,is beyond me.
A tale of working class people,trying to move on,and all the trials and tribulations that entails.
Acted,written and directed superbly.
If your a fan of Richard Curtis films,or decent British comedy in general,you'll love this.
