Glasgow Blues
3 September 2001 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

I have warm remembrances about this sympathetic movie. It's funny, romantic and entertaining, without any exaggeration. You will feel immediate closeness to the main characters - if you're not older than 25 yourself, you may recognize the problems you may have encountered in your first serious relationship; if you are older, you will smile and think back of the days everything just seemed easier and nicer. I only saw the movie once, 14 years ago, but until today I remember this particular one-liner. After having been split up for several weeks, Mary and Alan meet again. You can tell from their faces, they both feel sorry and regret they are not together any more. There is this mutual uneasieness, until Alan mumbles: "I feel miserable. But I like feeling miserable with you."
