Movie Info

This British rock musical tells a tale older than dirt -- the saga of the rise to fame of an eager young star, only to discover that fame is not all that it is cracked up to be. Hazel O'Connor is a young punk-rocker, singing her angry diatribes on the splintered stages on third-rate London venues. Soon enough, she meets up with a young, aspiring manager Phil Daniels, and she rises to the top. But success puts a damper on a burgeoning love relationship, and when Jon Finch arrives, playing a sleek and smooth record promoter, the duo's artistic independence is also compromised. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Breaking Glass

Its an interesting film about the music industry during the new wave age, but I felt that it was not enjoyable enough, and the best character, which was the saxophone player, was not used enough. Still, it is fairly well made and is still worth to watch

Messy and compromised as it is, the picture's grungy unrest still is an interesting attempt at capturing the business and zeitgeist of Britain's punk rock scene.

The plot is boring, unoriginal, and seemingly pointless. None of the characters are likeable, and one of the songs is distractingly racially insensitive. It's a shame, too, because the music is pretty decent.
