The Fence - 2022 - 6/10
“Just don’t go leaving this laying about,” the motorbike dealer warns Steven.
Do young men ever listen? He leaves it outside the front door, and 10 minutes later it’s stolen.
From then, this becomes a quest through council estates Bristol, mid 80’s.
A journey through con men, petty thugs, opportunistic hustlers, drugs.
By turns cynical and comical. Everyone, it seems, is on the fiddle.
Attractive, sympathetic cast helps this immensely.
May resonate more with Brits who recall the 1980’s.
