4.5 For missing the target from there you need shooting! blayboy | 27/03/2011 | See all blayboy's reviews (447) The DU (Damned United) is based around Brian Clough's 44 days in charge at Leeds United. Having been born after the events of this film, DU provides an excellent insight into Brian Clough and his managerial Career. The film is well made. The acting is brilliant. The settings and reconstructions of the football matches are also very good and quite convincing. Im not sure how close to the truth the story is as the book was heavily questioned after being released. Despite this the general plot and story is one that can be enjoyed by football fans (& film fans) of all ages.
