A great Bill Forsyth movie
1 October 1999 | by (Tromsø, Norway) – See all my reviews

I know that Cary Parker is listed as director and writer, but this film is almost more Bill Forsythian than any of his own works. Set in Glasgow, it has John Gordon Sinclair in the main role and it is low-key, intelligent and very funny. A must for Bill Forsyth fans.
