When he was little (and played by Matti Novick), Henry had to witness his father, gentleman robber George (Frank Harper), shot dead by his best friend Mick (Gary Webster). But Mick had the decency to take the boy in and raise him as one of his own - which isn't necessarily a good thing as Mick's the head of the Roman crime family.

Now, Henry's (as an adult played by Michael Head) a bit of the trouble child of the Roman family, to the point where he nicks quite a bit of the family money and goes into hiding. Of course, it's not as if any of the Romans were exactly saints, Mick's real son Jimmy (Charlie Clapham) is an incorrigible womanizer despite having a beautiful wife (Alexandra Kate) at home, Mick's brother Charlie (David Schaal) has driven his wife to suicide, and Charlie's daughter Chloe (Maisie Smith) hates her father for it and has thus turned to substance abuse. And then out of the blue, one year after his disappearance, Henry pops up again to make his family a fair business proposition. Nobody trusts him of course, but the sound of some easy money just rings too good in the Romans' ears. Thing is, Henry has set his eyes on a prize much bigger than a healthy payday, but some of the Roman family might stand in his way for that ...

 

Bermondsey Tales: Fall of the Roman Empire is rather epic in scope, and instead of telling its story stringently it time and again loses itself in subplots only vaguely connected to the main storyline - but the film works quite well using this kind of narrative approach, for one because the film's quite light-footed in both script and direction, and the little segments themselves are mostly really entertaining, often pretty funny without ever crossing over to the moronic side of things. And that the movie's populated by well fleshed out characters portrayed by a very solid ensemble cast sure helps making this really good gangster cinema.
