Movie Description:
Pet Shop Boys Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant embark upon a journey across England - but which England? Is it the half-remembered England of their childhoods, or the brutal reality of Mrs Thatcher's late-eighties England? Along the way they come across many familiar (and sinister) faces. The movie also features some of the Pet Shop Boys' most popular records.

Reviews

What is this film about?

The BFI recently released this on Blu-ray and DVD. Someone on Facebook recommended it, so I thought I would pick it up.

From the reviews on IMDB, I gather the film is meant to be surreal and the plot a bit all over the place, but sadly I think it was too much for me. I do like weird films, that break the "formula" and experiment, but I just ended up confused near the end.

Everything felt kind of pointless when there is no storyline throughout - it felt like a few music videos loosely glued together (which is what it appears to actually be).

Perhaps with more thought and planning, this could have made a more coherent narrative.

An inexplicably forgotten title

On the back of releasing their album 'Actually', which plays like a greatest hits and includes the iconic "It's a Sin", PSBs decided to release this musical, feature length music video, depending how you'd like to look at it.As a film, it is disjointed, pretentious, with some fairly dreadful dialogue, delivered mostly in Neil Tennant's dull monotone.As a music video, it's perfect, full of odd and surreal goings on, with a few hand fulls of sexual innuendo, interspersed with catholic imagery, nuns in suspenders, a killer priest, Barbara Winsor, an appallingly over the top used car salesman and Clacton acting as the backdrop, the not so proverbial coastal town that they forgot to close down.We all know the landscape, and the songs, fast forward the bad bits by all means, but It Couldn't Happen Here, It's a Sin, Heart, Suberbia and One More Chance will each leave you encapsulated and wondering why more bands don't give this a try. Flawed yes, but Neil and Chris, thank you for give us this.
