Comfort and Joy

You never heard of the Great Glasgow Ice Cream Wars? They weren’t exactly Armageddon, and the gentle director Bill Forsyth makes a radio personality’s involvement with two competing ice cream companies more of a plunge into amiable drollery. If you like Gregory’s Girl and Local Hero you’ll understand the odd, unhurried attitude of this oddball show from 1984.

Movie Review – Whisky Galore! (2016)

15 May 2017 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whisky Galore!, 2016.

Directed by Gillies MacKinnon,

Starring Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard, Ellie Kendrick, Kevin Guthrie, Fenella Woolgar and James Cosmo.

Synopsis:

It’s 1941, rationing is in force and the residents of the Scottish island of Todday are faced with a nightmare.  Their supply of whisky has run out and the island is completely dry.  But then a cargo ship runs aground on some nearby rocks and it’s carrying 50,000 cases of whisky.  The islanders are determined to get their hands on it.  All that stands in their way is that it’s the Sabbath – and the officers from Customs and Excise.

Alexander Mackendrick’s Whisky Galore! from 1949 is regarded as a British comedy classic.  Compton Mackenzie had taken the true story of a ship – with its cargo of whisky – going aground off a remote Scottish island, turned it into a popular comic novel and then wrote the script for the film. »
