Comments on Days That Made Us

  1. The punk said the victim of the robbery should have locked his window, actually putting the blame on the victim for being robbed! How about just not robbing people? In the? U.S. these little repeat criminals would not be free to offend repeatedly. The UK coddles it's criminals too much! However, I am very impressed at the relatively few gun offenses by juveniles (& and adults), our friends must be doing some things right over there!

  4. Another award winning film ....made by first light and young people sharing there stories in an honest way. it does not seek to celebrate crime but give a honest small insight into the thoughts and events. This is only a tiny part of the story ....I am proud of them for sharing this . To dismiss them as punks , just allows us as a society to segregate, exclude and have no accountably for the young members of our community

  6. I really like this film, If i had seen it sooner I would have defiantly voted it up.
    It gives you a really interesting insight into the gripping stories and minds of the lads and girls who just decide to go for it and take a risk without thinking of the consequences, which is what living life is all about (Not that I condone crime).
    Realistically we all wanted to see some crime or conviction like road wars and other programmes offer, rather than the repeat fixed shots of people walking, but really the film is based on the narration and the story behind it, the fill video works well at this point, but it's probably the reason it really didnt win. Some re-constructions might have helped to really sell the story, but still I loved it.
