As stupid not sound many people think that all skinheads are Nazis. But is not so.

I'm not going to tell you about real skinheads, because this movie will tell you it is better than could I would've done. But most valuable in this picture is a description of events that led to the prosperity of Nazi ideas among skinheads and sharing their two the main "front": the Nazis and anti-fascists.

I want to thank the main Creator of the film — Shane Meadows's show. The picture is made very high quality, it can be revised many times.

It evokes a lot of emotions how positive and negative.

In my opinion, this is the best film about the subculture of skinheads.

In General, anyone who wants to know who are real skinheads, would recommend to view this tape.

I "love" these anti-racist films. The feeling that all removable for one same scenario, only the other actors, and a few other details. The essence of the film is banal to be: live on the light of the unhappy teenager, which all don't like, in a word, derelict. But, over time, it goes to gang skin hedov, among which, necessarily, there is one special and crazy racist. He, of course, life loser, has a bad temper, in General, a complete opposite. Smacks of some childhood cartoons, where there are good people, but there is also separately the infamous superhero.

In the film there is absolutely no contradiction. It is not "American History X" — a movie that makes you think, which is not divides the world good is bad and represents each side as with positive and negative sides.

"This is England" — stupid film, where nearly 1.5 hours of a bunch of English teenagers-nerds engaged in blatant nonsense. And then we met short vstavochki on  the"horrors of racism".

The film is so inept and clueless that only a change of actors brings us the different meaning. Change skin hedov, on the Muslim religious fanatics, and Negro Christian — and get exactly the same, but already antimuslim movie or do the same with the victim of a vegetarian, and we learn about the horrors of the "meat eaters".

To get special pleasure from the movie, only from that it took several abnormal liberastov opposed to racism, — stupid.

Therefore, only 2 10 

Would unit start to me looked very interesting and promising.

Seven or eight years ago at one of resources I came across article name, "You will have no 16 years old", which so rocked my established to the worldview of the skinheads that I had to the temptation to try to do that same with the worldviews of classmates in the University, so I printed the contents of web pages and presented a paper on their judgment. This article and this day can be found on the vast expanses of the Internet, and the on the origin and formation of such contradictory and ambiguous movement as the skinheads. To which is I? And to what after an hour of watching the movie "It — England" in the head involuntarily Association with this article.

The Central figure of this film is a little boy by the name of Sean, who in spite of young age already have time to learn the bitterness of loss: in the Falklands war killed his father. With then every mention of the boy perceives in bayonets, because it remember this person, if anyone dares to say something negative into address father, Sean matter to increase or at the age of bullies and ready to pour that the first number. Not having friends, boy in alone spends free time. But the loneliness comes to an end when one day, after yet another fight in school, he back runs into a group korotkometrazhnyh young people, the leader of which the name woody is very friendly, strongly encourages Shawn and even a slight conflict between the members of his "gang" and Sean, gets in favor of the latter. Also on the side of Sean gets up and the only black member of the "gang" at the name milky destined for an important role in the events that followed.

On the one hand in the film is very much childish cute, I can even say naive scenes — what though is the epic buying a Shoe for the main character, or the scene of the final adoption of Sean's "gang", and other — a lot more scenes and frankly unflattering cause: whether it is mayhem store belonging to one of immigrants, whether the monologue Combo about the worthlessness of the Falklands war in the presence of Sean? that "worthless" the war took away his father.

The music sounding in the film, in a certain way echoes the musical tastes, skinheads, described in the aforementioned article, and is an excellent keynote for events on screen events: when all come and happily, the music and become — relaxed melodious (of"Louie, Louie"), as only all changes there is a conflict, and the music changes — we hear the rattling vocals, aggressive lyrics and guitar riffs ("Warhead"). The same the tragic scene of the film accompanies the surprise of a quiet melody, which multiplies the effect of events on the screen.
