Small Time (BFI) in October
The BFI have announced the UK DVD release Small Time and Where’s the Money Ronnie! on 11th October 2010 priced at £12.99 RRP. Coinciding with the release of British director Shane Meadows' TV debut, This is England '86, the BFI is making his 1996 first feature Small Time and the short film Where's the Money Ronnie! available on DVD for the first time.
Small Time is a tale of petty crime set in Sneinton, Nottinghamshire. Meadows himself stars as Jumbo, leader of a ragtag band of small time crooks specialising in dog food heists and the sale of Eastern bloc trainers, empty suitcases and non-existent musical instruments.
Also included is Where's the Money Ronnie!, Meadows' short film homage to Kurosawa's Rashomon that explores the aftermath of a robbery. Four suspects recall their version of events in police interviews but what really happened and who has the money?
The films are presented on a Region 0 disc in anamorphic widescreen with optional English HOH subtitles. The only extras are film notes and credits.
