Tinker tailor soldier spy (1)

  1. 1. What makes a film British
  2. 2. The general plot of this film involves the hunt of a Soviet double agent at the top of the British secret service. It appears to be one of the four senior figures in the BI (British Intelligence) . As a result, an operation is started in Hungary to identify who it was. 1) The Cast The cast are essential to a true ‘British’ film. If a so-called ‘British’ film starred Will Smith, Brad Pitt and Channing Tatum we may find it particularly difficult to associate the film with British culture. Especially because we know those actors aren’t British. An all-British cast contributes to making a successful British film. This film cast includes the likes of : Colin Firth (The Kings Speech, Love Actually) Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Harry Potter) Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, 12 Years a Slave) Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Branson) Mark Strong (Stardust, Kick-Ass) As we know, the actors are all British and just by them being included in the film can give a ‘British’ feel to the movie. They can all be identified due to their accents also. What makes this film ‘British’
  3. 3. Its very likely that your average British film is to be filmed in Britain also. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was filmed in a variety of locations in London from North London to West London. The physics department of Imperial College and Hampstead Heath were other places where scenes were filmed. Audiences can identify with areas of England and differ whether the film is in a British location or an American location. London is very different to Washington D.C, and New York is very different to somewhere like Essex. The locations can really help a British film be ‘British’ and the setting can identify with the people of Britain as they watch the film also. Being set in London the early 1970s.

  4. 4. This film was backed financially by the French Production company ‘Studio Canal’. Although this a French –based production it is responsible for producing a large number of British films such as: Nanny McPhee Pride and Prejudice Shaun of the Dead I Give it a Year A large number of the films produced by Studio Canal are British, and therefore, this studio is a reasonable contribution to what makes it British as it handles a quite a lot of British films. Working Title is another company, which is actually based in London. This film is responsible for the likes of About Time, The Worlds End etc. The Studio Production

This was released in various cinemas like ‘Vue’ and Odeon’. Distribution
  6. 6. The film has won ‘Outstanding British Film’ in the BAFTAs and also ‘Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema’.
