Very enjoyable, well worth your time
British films have, historically, tended to stick to certain formulas. They are usually set in the ‘grim’ north and are about underdogs winning against the odds. But while ‘Bank of Dave’ does fit that synopsis, it manages to be fresh, funny, and relevant. It doesn’t dwell on grime for grittiness – it actually shows how beautiful the north of England is, how friendly the people are, and it’s a joy to watch the central character of a London lawyer fall for the northern charm. But that’s just a side show to the main story which is an incredible true story I wasn’t previously aware of, and one that needs to be told. My Netflix subscription is currently balancing on a knife’s edge, but this film managed to save it from being cancelled this month. More like this, please!
After watching a string of overlong offerings from Netflix this was a refreshingly well made film.
A true story, despite obvious fictional embellishment, it was well acted and the screenplay and direction was efficient and credible.
One feature in the story gave me a bit of a problem: the theft of a page of Hugh’s file. That seems a bit of a stretch of the imagination but I won’t try and find out if it did actually happen.
It was also nice to see a film that is clearly not a pilot for a potential series.
And of course it does make a very important point about the banking sector. Overall strongly recommended.
