    P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang. Some people may perceive this film as sweet and adorable, but they have to be completely (or almost) entirely mistaken. P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang is probably the most overrated stories of all time: after I watched it, I found myself depressed and angry, wanting an hour of my life back. No need to fear however, liberation is coming, in a few decades this film will become outdated, gather dust and left on a shelf to rot. Don't make the same mistake as I did: DON'T WATCH THIS FILM! Watch some good films like the Godfather trilogy (excluding number 3 which is essentially about incest), Shawshank Redemption, the Good,the Bad,the Ugly, the Dark Knight, Inception, Argo, the Untouchables, Gladiator...Don't get me started and don't waste a single brain cell on P'tang yang kipper bang. It's utter crap,

    Wonderful coming of age British drama set in the post World War II years which follows young Alan 'Quack Quack' Duckworth who is desperate to kiss the girl of his dreams who is in the same class as him. One of the movie's pleasures is it's comforting nostalgia for times past. Traffic-free suburban streets, roses in the front gardens, the pervading smell of creosote and carbolic is well suggested here, and there are some great observations on the passing of the old order. The school setting is a big plus for all viewers of a certain age; the cruelties of children, the awakening sexual urges, life's great mysteries and the ennui of a summer term in a losing battle with the approaching holidays. Daydreamer Alan's infatuation with Ann and his thwarted attempts to secure a kiss is easy and enjoyable to identify with, but generally the girls come off rather badly: Ann rejects her conservative suitor and is herself rejected by the object of her curiosity, Alan. The writing is engaging, the direction assured, and while the acting is a little TV-drama standard, the stand-outs are Alison Steadman's prim but voracious Estelle Land and Alan's schoolmates, Abbo and Shaz. Great stuff.

    Adolescent love and obsession. Fourteen year old Alan Duckworth is in love with one of the girls at his school and dreams of kissing her, and spends the rest of his time in cricketing daydreams which are beautifully voiced by John Arlott. A very English drama.

    Interesting insight into "boy likes girl" in the 80s - it doesn't go like that anymore :) Unexpected ending too. I loved the running cricket commentary metaphor :)

    To be honest, it's a rather dull coming of age drama as a 14 year old schoolboy yearns for his first kiss and dreams of England reclaiming the Ashes.
