Overview

Before Gregory's Girl, Bill Forsyth mate this equally hilarious caper about a group of unemployed teenagers who hatch a plan to steal a job lot of stainless steel sinks. Long championed by the likes of Mark Kermode, and unavailable with its original Glaswegian dialogue track since its long-deleted original VHS release, Forsyth's authentic depiction of 1970s Glasgow youth culture makes for an unfairly neglected slice of British cinema and a welcome rediscovery by BFI's Flipside DVD label.
