Brassed Off £3.99 @ Play.Com

Starring the late great Pete Postlethwaite

It's 1992, and the miners of Grimley Colliery are facing uncertainty. Not only is their pit under threat, but the Grimley Colliery Band is on the verge of breaking up - that is, until Gloria (Tara Fitzgerald) arrives.

As the only female member of the band, she somehow manages to rekindle their enthusiasm for the forthcoming National Championship, as well as rekindling a childhood romance with Andy (Ewan McGregor).

Pete = The Guvnor. Rip.

He def had a face that you could say had "character" !!! - not to be mistook for anyone else.

great actor !
#6
One of the finest character actors. Every scene he was in, he stole.

RIP
#7
Terrific actor and a great film. RIP
#8
Superb film; one of my all time faves.
And a sad loss.
#9
Pete Postlethwaite RIP!
#10
His ignorant malevolence as Sgt. Hakeswill will always be his magnum opus to me.
#11
I just remembered a great film that ive been trying to place the name of all day since i heard of this sad news , it was called Among Giants and was British film where he had to paint a load of those massive pylons up in Yorkshire somewhere anyone else ever see that ?

I remember seeing Brassed Off the first time and laughing one minute and crying the next. When the Band played Danny Boy outside the hospital window I blubbed like a baby. Through this I now have a great appreciation of brass band music. Well worth £3.99 of anyone's money.

Yep i had freebie copy in the paper
what a fine fine actor
beats all the newbies into a cocked hat
#14
Great price for an absolute corker of a film. Just watched this again, prompted by the sad news of the loss of a truly talented, great actor. :(

RIP Pete

a great film with skilled actors all the way- and fairly accurate historically
#16
His stage acting was also that of a consummate thespian, eg, King Lear. RIP Pete.
#17
Shame about him, but I suppose it means I am going to have months of playing the same old "Death or Glory," "Clog Dance" & "Concierto De Aranjuez" etc.... oh, and "Floral Dance"....yet AGAIN!

Brass bands have moved on a bit since this film, but at times you would never think it :-(

What’s He doing? He can take John Lennon. He can take those three young lads down at Ainsley Pit. He’s even thinking of taking my old man. And Margaret bloody Thatcher lives! What’s He sodding playing at, eh?

Danny: You see what I mean. That way, I'll not just be talking to myself, will I? Because over the last ten years, this bloody government has systematically destroyed an entire industry. OUR industry. And not just our industry - our communities, our homes, our lives. All in the name of "progress". And for a few lousy bob. I'll tell you something else you might not know, as well. A fortnight ago, this band's pit were closed - another thousand men lost their jobs. And that's not all they lost. Most of them lost the will to win a while ago. A few of them even lost the will to fight. But when it comes to losing the will to live, to breathe, the point is - if this lot were seals or whales, you'd all be up in bloody arms. But their not, are they, no, no they're not. They're just ordinary common-or-garden honest, decent human beings. And not one of them with an ounce of bloody hope left. Oh aye, they can knock out a bloody good tune. But what the **** does that matter?



R.I.P. Pete

I was in a brass band for 20 years and remember watching this wonderful film in an old cinema in Harrow before the multiplex rolled in. Now its a gym with occassional organ concerts.

Anyway, superb actor, and such a shame as he doubtless had many more great roles in him.

I used to go to that one as a kid! Yeah it's a Gold's Gym now and I'm a member of it. I lift weights while reminiscing about watching Labyrinth there with only three others in the cinema at the time.
