Fantastic nostalgia trip across the pennines in the summer of 1970
1 December 2004 | by (york, england) – See all my reviews

I saw this film the day before the 94 world cup started (don't think its ever been repeated) and am glad I taped it as I must have seen it a dozen times since.

The story starts with Marco the son of a rich Italian family discovering that his real father is from England, and he decides to go to Lancashire to trace his roots. Once there he meets Ellie, a student who is planning to hitch-hike to Whitby with boyfriend Carl during the summer holidays.

As Carl gets more interested in Englands progress in the 70 Mexico world cup, Ellie gets more interested in the 'flash' Marco in his bright red Lamborghini Miura, to the point where both end up rivals for her affection.

If I could write a film just for me this has it all, ie nostalgia, humour, my favourite car, football references(you don't actually see any),countryside/places I can relate to(i'm from Yorkshire), and a good old romantic story.

If it is ever released on DVD I'll be first in the queue.
