Very enjoyable, well worth your time
British films have, historically, tended to stick to certain formulas. They are usually set in the ‘grim’ north and are about underdogs winning against the odds. But while ‘Bank of Dave’ does fit that synopsis, it manages to be fresh, funny, and relevant. It doesn’t dwell on grime for grittiness – it actually shows how beautiful the north of England is, how friendly the people are, and it’s a joy to watch the central character of a London lawyer fall for the northern charm. But that’s just a side show to the main story which is an incredible true story I wasn’t previously aware of, and one that needs to be told. My Netflix subscription is currently balancing on a knife’s edge, but this film managed to save it from being cancelled this month. More like this, please!
Excellent comedy with an important point
A really good comedy (I laughed out loud a few times, and giggled a lot) in the style of some of the great British social comedies like the Full Monty, Pride and so on.
Very well acted by all, including especially Rory Kinnear (son of the late Roy, and a really splendid actor in his own right).
The concert scenes especially showed his skill as an actor.
It’s a touching story (based on truth) in a beautiful setting and held together well by a dramatic and romantic narrative.
Always nice to see the despicable, scheming bankers get their comeuppance too.
I would give it 10 but I think it might have given a nod to Muhammad Yunus who won the Nobel Peace prize for his work in microfinance in the 1970s.
And perhaps an acknowledgement of the work of the many credit unions and cooperative businesses in the UK working tirelessly under the same vision of community and people supporting each other.
