Writer/director Herman pulls off a popular, proletarian comedy which might actually appeal to the people it's about.

The characters are beautifully drawn in this bittersweet melodrama written and directed by Mark Herman.

"Brassed Off'' is a sweet film with a lot of anger at its core.

A shining ensemble cast that hits all the right notes makes Brassed Off toot sweet.

Shamelessly manipulative and sentimental, but in an agreeably familiar way.

The cast is ardent as all get-out, but the most authentic emotional lift comes from the real-life Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band, blowing their hearts out.
