Detailed item information

Description
Acclaimed British filmmaker Shane Meadows (DEAD MAN'S SHOES, TWENTY FOUR SEVEN) steps outside his familiar Midlands for his first film set in London, SOMERS TOWN, a rites of passage drama that elaborates on the themes of the director's earlier A ROOM FOR ROMEO BRASS and THIS IS ENGLAND.


THIS IS ENGLAND's phenomenal Thomas Turgoose stars as Tomo, who, having runaway from his native Nottingham, finds himself on the streets of London's King's Cross. It isn't long before he becomes friends with Marek (Piotr Jagiello), a young Polish immigrant who lives nearby. While this unlikely pair seems to have little in common at first, it isn't long before they realise the trials and tribulations of youth transcend cultural boundaries and both begin to harbour desires for a beautiful young waitress who works in their local cafe.




Meadows effortlessly crafts another poignant tale that addresses the obstacles youngsters face when making the transition from child to adult in SOMERS TOWN; a film that ranks alongside the director's best work. Turgoose—who was a revelation in 2006's THIS IS ENGLAND—is an engaging lead, ably supported by newcomer Jagiello, consolidating Meadows' reputation as an incredible director of younger actors.

Natasha Braier's stunning black and white photography showcases a London that's not been seen in decades, providing an exquisite backdrop against which this intensely involving drama plays out.

SYNOPSIS - Directed by Shane Meadows    With Thomas Turgoose, Ireneusz Czop, Piotr Jagiello, Elisa LasowskiKate Dickie, Perry Benson

A black-and-white study of a social environment in London, concentrating on a pair of unlikely new friends and the girl they both fancy.

Two teenagers, both newcomers to London, forge an unlikely friendship over the course of a hot summer. Tomo is a runaway from Nottingham; Marek lives in the district of Somers Town, between King's Cross and Euston stations, where his dad is working on a new rail link. The boys are both infatuated with the same girl, and pass their days bickering over which of them loves her the most. Finding himself homeless, Tomo surreptitiously moves into Marek's bedroom - but it's only a matter of time before Marek's dad discovers what's going on...

Shane Meadows' beautiful snapshot of life for two teenagers in North London, "Somers Town", is a million miles away from "This is England" in tone, but has no less class or brilliance about it. Filmed in wonderful black and white, this is a delightful, entertaining and involving piece about youth, culture and friendship.

The power of Meadows's film-making is in his characters. Something rings fundamentally true about the people that he brings to the screen, and the writing of Paul Fraser (a long time Meadows-collaborator) is a great help to this film. The dialogue is humorous, moving and insightful, which gets the audience utterly involved in this film. Added to this, the acting is wonderful. Thomas Turgoose, who was spectacular in "This is England", continues to be an impressive and interesting screen presence. He is ably supported, not just by Piotr Jagiello, who plays the Polish teenager Marek, but by the rest of the small, but perfectly formed, ensemble.

This film is not just an entertaining and moving piece, but is also a beautiful film with a dash of severity. There is a particularly emotive and thought-provoking scene where the immigrant father and son talk to each other. Britain's debates on immigration often ignore the individuals involved in the issues, and that scene cuts right to an unexplored area of the matter.

The beauty of the film is not just in its emotions and characters, but also in its photography. Monochrome is a form of cinematography which lends itself to beauty, but Meadows exploits this magnificently. There is a change to colour during the film which could have been crass but is in fact wonderful. The images are also accompanied by a beautiful series of songs which give the film real character. All of these elements come to fore in a number of dialogue-less sequences.

Meadows has created a lovely piece of cinema. Short though it is, that is part of its charm. It is not extraneous or self-indulgent. It is what it is: a simple joy to be delighted in by many.  (SOURCE:  IMdB)
