-Comment: 12 or 13 yo young Pink (Kevin McKeon, pic 2) and little Pink ~8 (David Bingham, pic 3) in typical British grey knickers (pictured), also boys in historical clothes and hats (pic 1, short scene) and one sailor (brief scene at 1h 03). Also a spanking scene of young Pink at school. Some other boys and teens but nothing more of interest.
Probably everyone knows The Wall, at least some songs “We don’t need no education – We don’t need no thought control”. Not sure if everyone knows this movie as well.
Less than half of this film showing flashback scenes of little and young Pink, the rest showing grown up Pink (Geldorf) and perfect surreal animations by Gerald Scarfe. The film is quite good, the music of course very good, but I rarely watch or listen this DVD. I bought it many years ago (mainly because of the plot, I already had the music before). Lots of WWII related scenes, especially in the animations. Rated R.
No Lederhosen and no sailor suit scenes, except for the sailor. But for the other historical clothing and spanking scene I had to add this here as well. The spanking seems a bit faked. Also a peeping scenes of young Pink.
DVD: I own the 1999 remastered deluxe edition. 5.1 and PCM stereo. Lots of extras, more than 1 hour, including documentaries, interviews, trailer, gallery, the music video and secret buttons.
Rating: Movie: 8, Sound: 8, Extras 10, Animation: 10, Actors: 7, Clothing: 5-6.
