The Terence Davies Trilogy, 1983 Created as three separate films over a ten year period, Trilogy offers an early insight into his distinctive technique and style. Heavily autobiographical, through his fictional alter-ego Robert Tucker, we witness three stages of life. In the first film, Children (1974-76) domestic violence and brutality dominate and in Madonna and Child (1980) his closet homosexuality leads to abject misery. Finally, in Death and Transfiguration (1980-83) Tucker copes with the death of his mother and his own loneliness and mortality.
