The Guv'nor
4 November 2016 | by raymond-756-584830See all my reviews

Having Known about Lenny as The Guv'nor, i was not expecting this to be so emotional and eye-opening, having lennie's son do the narration and generally opening up about past life was incredible...this is a must see documentary about a legend of a man 10 out 0f 10.....what was interesting as well, was the new facts that i didn't know about Lenny growing up in London and being among the same sort of people as Lenny i do have an understanding of what life was like, bullying was rife and actually people like Lennie's step-dad were all over the place. the saddest part of all this is that Lenny didn't get to see this remarkable piece of cinema
