Donal MacItyre is one of Britain's best-known investigative journalists and has literally put his life on the line to uncover all sorts of wrong doing and illegal activity. His powerful and thought provoking TV documentaries have won awards and one of his biggest triumphs was seeing two dangerous Chelsea football hooligans being imprisoned for seven and six years respectively after an investigation for his 'MacIntyre Undercover' series for the BBC.
A 'Very British Gangster' was his directorial debut and was a massively successful fly-on-the-wall feature length documentary in which he built a relationship with one of Manchester's most notorious gangsters, Dominic Noonan. The sequel, Sins Of The Father: A Very British Gangster 2, is released by High Fliers on retail DVD on 16th January 2012 and promises to be every bit as successful as the original film.
It picks up from the moment Noonan leaves prison after five years to find his power eroded and his family decimated. Gangland executions and massive police operations have nearly killed off his criminal empire and vengeance is in the air. However he returns to the streets under stringent terrorist style conditions, under oppressive police surveillance and without power cash and his gangster army. His greatest hope of regaining control of the streets rests with his 16-year-old child Bugsy but can the child outlive and survive the sins of his father?
In Donal MacIntyre's own words Sins Of The Father: A Very British Gangster 2 is "first and foremost a gangster movie. There are murderers, funerals, trials and acquittals but in this instance all the actors and the consequences are very real". It is also a stunning piece of filmmaking which shows MacIntyre doing what he so supremely good at.
