Movies: This is England

I just watched this film on the recomendation of a friend and I have to say I was moved by how raw and powerful it is. Not only the issues dealt with in the film but the instrumental soundtrack at various parts. The preformance by Stephen Graham as Combo is among some of the best acting I have ever seen. Well worth watching! (And I am not English).

I'm not acquainted with the movie having never seen it, however I do know that it uses some music from this CD by Ludovico Einaudi, which I own the non-SE
of and can definitely recommend if you like very affective orchestral and/or piano music.

It is a single piano instrumental in the film. I am into all sorts of music but that piece really just grasped me.

Well, there's quite a bit more music than that single piano track in the whole film, but FWIW that track is also by Einaudi, and can be found on his Una Mattina album.

Dead Man's Shoes is another good film made by the same director.

Yeah, I agree with that. It's pretty dark, but a damn fine film.

A Room for Romeo Brass is also worth watching, but not as good as the other two.
