One of my more gifted students said he tried to watch a British film and couldn't understand anything. i reassured him that to watch British films you usually have to be born and raised in the exact area where the film is set. i clinched it by then launching into my broad West Yorkshire accent, much to the class's bemused horror.
Yep, that's about right. I felt like that watching The Limey.
Elb: I bet that also made your tweed bristle. Well might they bemusedly horrificate.Ian: I blame not starting you lot young: a formative diet of Wombles, Daleks and Rastamouse is recommended.
What about that great line in The Limey, after Stamp delivers a hilarious and largely incomprehensible Cockney rant to Bill Duke's impassive cop character - Duke listens without expression then says: "There's just one thing I don't understand. The thing I don't understand is every motherfucking word you just said."
