"While some films depend on lavish CGI flights of fancy, The Fighter’s Ballad draws its strength from its simplicity. Taking place in a cavernous east London church, this is a stark two handed confrontation between the gentle-spirited Reverend John and the Fighter of the title - a loquacious ball of anger and despair who breaks in from the street. Though the rhythmic back and forth of their exchange often smacks of the stage, there’s an impressive visual sheen here, and the dialogue is given a weighty intensity by the superb performances of Peter Cadwell and Clive Russell." Danny Leigh - Film Critic & Co-host of BBC One - Film 2012
"Brutal but beautiful." .... "Powerful, Provocative, Poetic, Profound."
_"If you're into dialogue driven indie films, in which the acting, writing and characters are intensely powerful, challenging, yet truly beautiful, heartbreaking...then this already cult classic is for you."
