Sports reporter (and widower/single-dad) Stuart Morrison's paper is in financial trouble, and hotshot businesswoman Cara Rossi's been assigned to make it profitable. Cara, eager to escape London after a disastrous affair with her boss, is still reluctant to take the assignment, as she left Glasgow for greener pastures and would once again be in the bosom of her overbearing Italian family. When she and Stuart meet, have a one-night stand, part, and then meet again in their business personas, will the relationship last and flower? Or will Cara's business plan and Stuart's memories of his wife, Siobhan, keep them apart? Written by
Glasgow Kiss is a lovely six episode drama chronicling the personal and professional dramas in Stuart (a newspaper sport's writer) and Cara's (a corporate reorganizer) lives. The two begin an unexpected love affair.
The beauty of Glasgow is revealed through glorious cinematography. The emotions of the story are echoed in the ever present drizzle of rain, dark Gothic architecture, vibrant green parks.
The writing in this series is top notch. Dry and witty humor at times. Serious and painfully sharp words at others. An absolutely griping series unfolds.
Iain Glen (Stuart) and Sharon Small (Cara) share a chemistry that sizzles on screen.
I watched the series on BBCAmerica many years ago and the story remains clear in my mind today. The acting, writing and cinematography are that strong.
I can only hope that it will come to DVD one day. I'd buy several copies for friends and family. A real delight.
