Periwinkle Blue

My go to film when I need a lift and a laugh is Snatch …

Snatch (stylized as snatch.) is a 2000 British-American crime comedy film written and directed by Guy Ritchie, featuring an ensemble cast. Set in the London criminal underworld, the film contains two intertwined plots: one dealing with the search for a stolen diamond, the other with a small-time boxing promoter (Jason Statham) who finds himself under the thumb of a ruthless gangster (Alan Ford) who is ready and willing to have his subordinates carry out severe and sadistic acts of violence.

The film features an assortment of characters, including Irish Traveller “One Punch” Mickey O’Neil (Brad Pitt), referred to as a “Pikey“, Russian arms-dealer Boris “the Blade” Yurinov (Rade Šerbedžija), professional thief and gambling addict Franky “Four-Fingers” (Benicio del Toro), American gangster-jeweller Abraham Denovitz known as “Cousin Avi” (Dennis Farina), small-time crooks Sol (Lennie James) and Vinny (Robbie Gee), getaway driver Tyrone (Ade), and bounty hunter Bullet-Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones). It is also distinguished by a kinetic direction and editing style, an intricate double plot featuring numerous ironic twists of chance and causality, and a fast pace.

Enough it’s a great film…though warning it’s violent and the language is appalling BUT believe me it’s so funny. Now where am I going with this? I shall explain!

In the scene below One Punch Mickey the Irish pikey fighter (Brad Pitt) and Turkish boxing promoter ( Jason Statham) and his sidekick Tommy (Steven Graham ) are discussing payment for a fight, plus the replacement of his mother’s caravan… Which had been burnt out…..

The language is foul and unintelligible to Turkish and Tommy and anyone watching! due the the strong Irish pikey accent. Where does Periwinkle come into this? Well Mickey’s Mum is very parcial to the colour Periwinkle Blue, and Mickey wants the seats and scatter cushions for the interior to be Periwinkle Blue! (“Ah! She’s terribly parcial to periwinkle blue”)

So Strong and unintelligible language warning ⚠️

    I remember watching this movie with Mick and he was howling with laughter (why he understood it more than I did is a mystery) and I kept saying. Wot? Wot? LOL… I need to rewatch it…
