"Hard work being in love, eh? Especially when you don't know which girl it is."
It was a film without much of a plot, set in a little Scottish town where youths seemingly roamed around freely without a care in the world. Unless you were an awkward teenager by the name of Gregory, of course.
Bill Forsyth's cute 1981 comedy became a surprise hit around the world, and has now been given a makeover in a DVD and Blu-ray re-release. So, after 33 years, does the film still resonate today?
The thing about Gregory's Girl that still resonates, is that not much happens. Compared to high school comedies of the past decade or so, where it's all risqué shenanigans and slapstick situations, this film is relaxed and easy-going, just like John Gordon Sinclair's Gregory himself.
Forsyth's filmmaking style is at its finest here, »
Gregory's Girl has been restored for a new DVD and Blu-ray release.
The classic 1981 British comedy from director Bill Forsyth will be released in widescreen for the first time on May 5.
It will also be made available as a digital download from April 21, and video-on-demand from April 28.
The DVD and Blu-ray will also include several special features, including new audio commentary from Forsyth and film reviewer Mark Kermode.
Forsyth and actress Clare Grogan will also appear in new interviews, while the alternative Us audio soundtrack will also be featured.
It was ranked at number 30 in the British Film Institute's list of the top 100 British films, and was nominated for four BAFTAs, winning the prize for Best Original Screenplay.
