Director: Bob Spiers
From the pen of Alexei Sayle, and no doubt inspired by his hit 'tune' of the same name, this is a radical remake of Bicycle Thieves, with Sayle playing both lead parts - a pair of twins
Sterling Moss is had and ignorant, his brother Carl is good and prison-educated Carl makes bikes with the help of a team of dolcites. Sterling, with their help, steals them. Their murder mad mum, (Beryl Reid) encourages the sibling rivalry with lethal results.
Sayles satirical script takes social awareness to new shallows the charges of a horribly realistic social worker are called Laura and Ashley - yet a surprising restraint is in evidence - occasionally.
