The Knack…and how to get it (Blu-ray+DVD) BFI
From Richard Lester, the director of the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night (1964) and Help! (1965) comes this inventive and hilarious romp through love and sex in 1960s London. Featuring a wildly frenetic filmmaking style that careers from slapstick to serious avant-garde, this genuinely dazzling film is a mod masterpiece.
Cool and sophisticated Tolen (Ray Brooks) has a monopoly on womanising- with a long line of conquests to prove it- while the naïve and awkward Colin (Michael Crawford) desperately wants a piece of it. But when Colin falls for an innocent country girl (Rita Tushingham), it’s not long before the self-assured Tolen moves in for the kill. Is all fair in love and war, or can Colin get the knack and beat Tolen at his own game?
