Description du produit

No other director has captured male aggression on film with the keen eye of Alan Clarke. Clarke's specialties are anger and violence, and he captures them with a brutal precision that belies the inherent messiness of the action. Along with Scum and Made in Britain, The Firm cements Clarke’s reputation as a gritty realist director. It was his final film before his death from cancer in 1990.

Special features:
Intro to the film by David Leland
Documentary on the life work of the director, Alan Clarke
Timewatch: Documentary exploring the roots of football hooliganism The
Late Show: Panel discussion and critical reaction to the film
Audio commentary with Phil Davis and Lesley Manville.

In The Firm, Clarke takes on football hooliganism and the mercenary ideals of Thatcher's England. Bex, played with virtuosic blend of ferocity and charm by Gary Oldman, is not the stereotypical skinhead thug, but, essentially, a yuppie. Clarke cannily introduces Bex as a family man who clearly loves his wife, Sue (Lesley Manville), and their young son. Initially, it seems that Bex is far more rational than his mates, as he resists their exhortations to seek immediate violent retribution when his car is vandalized. Clarke and Oldman, working from a script by Al Ashton (EastEnders), gradually reveal the depths of Bex's depravity.

In the world of The Firm, football and provincialism are merely excuses for preternaturally angry men to unleash terrorism upon each other. With his marriage on the verge of collapse, Bex is unable to relinquish his position as "top boy" of his crew. "I need the buzz," he moans, pleading with Sue to understand his unquenchable appetite for destruction. Clarke, who was actually a football fan, and Ashton reveal an ugly side of spectatorship, as certain fans see their own noxious behavior as more important than the sport they claim to love. While its critique of the Thatcher era is a bit oblique, the film is trenchant in its treatment of masculine identity tied to aggression. The level of barbarity the film reaches may strain credulity a bit, but Clarke pulls it together with a bitterly ironic, "triumphant" ending.

Cast: Gary Oldman (Bex Bissell), Lesley Manville (Sue), Philip Davis (Yeti), Andrew Wilde (Oboe), Charles Lawson (Trigg), William Vanderpuye (Aitch)

Short Description: Controversial 1988 Alan Clarke film about football thugs, starring Gary Oldman. Bex, a seemingly respectable estate agent, is also a football hooligan and general of a notorious gang of thugs. Determined to lead a national "firm" into Europe, Bex brings together rival gangs. But in taking on Yeti, he gets more than he bargained for. Includes some superb extra features.


These days people are dangerously nostalgic about the sinister tackiness of the 1980s, but there's no stiffer antidote to such delusion than Alan Clarke's The Firm. This unforgettable film was made as a one-off drama for the BBC in 1988, but its cult following has grown steadily through video, thanks to a startling central performance from a young Gary Oldman, and the riveting manner in which Clarke captures the lethal, mindless energy of football hooliganism.

Oldman plays Clive "Bexy" Bissell, working-class East London boy done good: a prosperous estate agent, proud homeowner, happy husband and doting father. But his chief pleasure is to be team leader ("top boy") of a bunch of overgrown yobs who attend football matches in order to cause violence. At weekends Bexy leads his "Inter City Crew" into rucks with rival warlords such as Yeti (Phil Davis) and Oboe (Andrew Wilde), in search of what he calls "the buzz", no matter the cost to his young family and his future prospects.

The Firm was entirely shot on SteadiCam, enabling Clarke to drop the viewer right into the thick of the action and exploit some hair-raisingly authentic rowdiness from his talented cast. Among these thugs, soap fans will spot Eastenders' Steve McFadden and Charlie Lawson of Coronation Street. The Firm is a masterpiece of social-realist drama, and one of the most virulently anti-Thatcherite films of its time. An avid supporter of Everton FC, Clarke responded to Al Hunter's script because he felt that the vicious idiots spoiling football were a new breed of disgrace. The tabloids raised a stink about the film's violence, and the BBC delayed its broadcast until 1989. A year later, Alan Clarke died of cancer, But The Firm is a tremendous last testament from the finest English director of his generation. --Richard Kelly --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

I am a HUGE Gary Oldman fan. I have seen him play murderers and terrorists but this was his most disturbing role ever. His character was so normal/abnormal. The kind of guy you wouldn't blink at on the street yet he's so angry when it comes to soccer.

Gary Oldman is amazing in this film even when you can't understand a word that he (or anyone else) says, I love the London dialects bur can't always make them out very well. Subtitles, perhaps?
