I lived in West Calder where this film was set from i was a 10 year old laddie, i was close childhood friends with Craig Smith who played Alex in the film and the film stirs some wonderful memories. I remember the scene where the Billy Hartman character discuss' the US / USSR arms race while the boys discuss who's building the biggest bonefire, perfect analogy. The street scenes were filmed in Methil , fife , however the landscape scenes were shot in the cauther, polbeth countryside. A top notch film that really resonates through the generations, the values , innocence , naivety, interests of the characters were were not dissimilar to ours growing up in the 80s and early 90s. I moved away from west calder when i was 16 but will never forget the great times i had there and i associate the film with those times , , , i wish i had pink eyes.
