Didn't You Kill My Brother?

Comic Strip's radical remake of Bicycle Thieves has Alexei Sayle as twins: Sterling Moss is bad and ignorant, Carl Moss is good and prison-educated. Carl makes bikes with the help of a gang of dole-ites; Sterling, with their help, nicks them. Their murder-mad mum (Beryl Reid, as wonderful as ever: 'You should always put a dead badger on a head wound...') encourages the sibling rivalry with lethal results. Sayle's 'satirical' script takes social awareness to new shallows: the charges of a horribly realistic social worker are called Laura and Ashley. You'll laugh.

A gem among the UK comedy.Something that British don't do any more since they become Americans(last 10 years).Excellent fun,parody, applicable to today's British society.Young British,caution: this film is not politicaly correct - it tells the truth;There was a liberty and freedom in the UK.Would you blieve it? They were actually able/let to film this kind of films?!Can you believe that? Educate yourseves.Imperative to see!
