Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Set against a backdrop of emerging teen culture and rising racial tension in late 50's London, Colin MacInnes' cult novel is brought to the screen in Julien Temple's lavish musical adaption.

Struggling young photographer Colin sees his ambitious, fame-seeking girlfriend Crepe Suzette slipping away as she ruthlessly pursues a career in fashion. To win her back he'll need to compromise his idealism and do whatever it takes to make the big time himself.

Absolute Beginners

An absolute classic, a Bowie classic. This is a sadly forgotten film over the years. A film set in the 50s with a great music background with a few Bowie originals. The film is certainly clean and clear from the VHS I owned years ago. This is a must buy!
