Only when he’s together with his friends, a ‘Mod’ clique, cruising London on his motor-scooter and hearing music such as that of ‘The Who’ and ‘The High Numbers’, does he feel free and accepted. However, it’s a flight into an illusionary world.
Plot: Based on the 1973 rock opera album of the same name by The Who, this is the story of 60s teenager Jimmy. At work he slaves in a dead-end job. While after, he shops for tailored suits and rides his scooter as part of the London Mod scene.

That’s why I’m a Mod see, because I don’t want to be like everyone else.
As the years have wore on, Quadrophenia has broken free of tagged cult classic status to emerge as a bona fide candidate for best British youth movie ever. The iconography of its main protagonist has subsided to let the core sensibility of the movies theme shine thru, this is pure and simple a perfect depiction of fallen youth during a heady time, a tale of ones ideology crumbling so sadly over the course of one weekend.
The period is captured vividly by director Franc Roddam, the stark threat of violence mixed in with the best music the 60s had to offer, serves to let the viewer feel they were there at the time, and the result is a perfect period piece. The story follows Jimmy N/A on a voyage of discovery that is funny at times, yet also very sadly tragic, and for anyone who was once a teenager searching for identity and purpose…….. then this film will have maximum resonance.
I came for the album, I stayed for the masterpiece film
Like most folks, I loved the album first. I don’t think there’s a better piece of recorded music by any band than The Who’s Quadrophenia. The movie follows the album so very lightly though. I really don’t think you need to know the album or story when you watch this.
Phil Daniel was so great as Jimmy. I hope he was nominated for some acting award and Franc for some directing award. So many great scenes. The one that hits me most hard every time I see it is during “The Bellboy” scene. After all of the negativity in Jimmy’s life, he sees Ace’s GS. Things are better. Or are they? I always get a lump in my throat on this particular scene. The last 10 minutes are spellbinding. I can’t believe more folks don’t know about this movie.
Being from the American south, the accent took me 3 times of watching to understand almost anything. Be prepared.
