Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Kultur und Landeskunde, Note: 1,7, Johannes Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz (Department of English and Linguistics), Veranstaltung: The North of England, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In 2001, Paul Marris argued in an essay which appeared in Cineaste that the tradition of "northern realism" could be traced back to Elizabeth Gaskell's social problem novels which announced many of the themes and approaches that have underpinned the traditional representation of the North up to the present: a documentary interest in the industrial urban districts; a realism which is in tension with melodramatic devices; the incorporation of elements of demotic speech; a continuing association between northerness and the industrial working class; and] a portrayal from the vantage point which is not wholly within.

Particularly "northern film always aroused] certain expectations and was often] a site for debating serious moral, economic and social issues." Along with films, such as Trainspotting (Danny Boyle, 1996) and The Full Monty (Peter Cattaneo, 1997), the movie Brassed Off (Mark Herman, 1996) certainly belongs into this genre of northern tragi-comedy. It is a Channel Four film production which made use of "a popular (. . .) format with two or three star names and a host of British character actors and] is situated at a moment of closure of one of the Yorkshire coalfields."
