Nick Love // United Kingdom, 2004
Fiction Feature // FF2004



Nick Love’s big-screen debut is a controversial film on British football hooligans. Tommy (Danny Dyer) is a Chelsea fan who spends every Saturday in a cloud of tear-gas, punch-ups, drugs and alcohol. Before the game against arch-rivals Millwall, Tommy starts having nightmares about the violence the fans are capable of. Will he grow out of it or end up a wreck, like old hooligan Billy? A hard-hitting film which had an 18 certificate in the UK.
