‘Although it openly lifts the plot and symbolism of Jean Vigo's 1933 Zero de Conduit, a film that was considered so incendiary that the French authorities banned it until 1945, "If..." is a true British classic.

"If..." taps into the revolutionary spirit of the late 60s. Each frame burns with an anger that can only be satisfied by imagining the apocalyptic overthrow of everything that middle class Britain holds dear.

Malcolm McDowell heads the cast as Mick, a teenage schoolboy who leads his classmates in a revolution against the stifling conformism of his boarding school.

Winner of Palme d’Or, Cannes, 1968.
