Evocative of the early 1960s “Angry Young Man” dramas, this 1979 British film tells the story of teenage gang battles between the Mods and Rockers at the English seaside. Music by The Who. With Sting in his movie debut.
London, 1965: Like many other youths, Jimmy hates the philistine life, especially his parents and his job in a company's mailing division. Only when he's together with his friends, a 'Mod' clique, cruises London on his motor-scooter and hears music such as that of 'The Who' and 'The High Numbers', he feels free and accepted. However, it's a flight into an illusionary world.
