This chapter presents an interview with film maker Terence Davies, conducted on 8 May 2006 at Kettners Restaurant, Soho. Davies was born in Liverpool in 1945 and grew up in a working-class Catholic family. The films With Distant Voices, Still Lives (1988) and The Long Day Closes (1992) marked Davies out as the most important and distinctive British film-maker since Michael Powell. He subsequently adapted and directed two novels by American authors: John Kennedy Toole's The Neon Bible (1995), and Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth (2000).

Keywords:   British film makers, screenwriters, With Distant Voices, Long Day Closes
