Synopsis

Liverpool-born director Terence Davies here assembles newsreels, existing documentary footage and home movies to create a vivid, highly subjective portrait of his beloved city at the time of his youth in the 1950s and 1960s. Described as both "a love song and a eulogy", Davies traces how the city changed, from its post-war incarnation of tough, tight-knit working class communities, through the birth of rock'n'roll and youth culture, to the social and housing developments of the 1960s that, though promising much, marked the end of a certain way of life. Though that may sound very serious, Davies' use of juxtaposition as well as his frequently witty narration makes this a warm, melancholically humorous treat.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
