All Over Brazil (BOF8)

Drama | 10mins | English | 2003



“It’s the summer of 1974 and Scotland face Yugoslavia in the group stage of the football World Cup. But Stephen seems more interested in the world of Glam Rock than football…”


Directed by: David Ward | Written by: Jamie Havlin
Starring: Frank Gallagher, Iain De Caestecker & Gemma Morrison


Hiding your preference of glam rock to football can’t have been an easy task in 1970’s Scotland and that’s what All Over Brazil tries to capture. The era is recreated with an amazing soundtrack, excellent set design and a filter which sets things up immediately. It’s less about sexuality and more about the challenges of a single-parent household; with a father not a mother. It’s focused, simple and well executed, but fails to take it in a new direction.
