This cult film drags you straight into the suburbs of Brixton, where reggae music blends with a brutal mix of police violence, family struggles, racism and a lot of pressure caused by social exclusion. There is a thin line here between documentary and film, where Franco Rosso, an immigrant himself, is approaching the matter of being an outsider from an empathic point of view, this being one of his main interests in his filmmaking recognition. It is a sharp drama shaped from an outcast position where good, dubby vibes are dropped over some pieces of filthy realism, as a reminder upon how music is able to keep and generate boundaries.
