Gary's lovely when he's nice.
3 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

As a teenage Spandau Ballet fan who has never quite grown out of it, I take a great interest in the films of the Kemp Brothers. Some of those that I have seen,"The Krays" and "Killing Zoe" were good movies, but I can't honestly say that a psychotic gangster or a blood thirsty bank robber is quite how I want to see my teenage hero. This is more like it. Its one of these great Made In Britain movies (in this case joint funded by Poland) that we are good at. Strong on characters, with humour, pathos and a good, if slightly implausible plot.

Gary Kemp is great as down on his luck artist who sees a way to pay of his debts. And he plays the harmonica. Pity in wasn't the guitar though. That would have taken me right back. The cover for this said "If you liked Green Card you'll love Paper Marriage" This is 100 times better than Green Card, for a start Andie MacDowall is nowhere in sight.
