A very memorable film, but I cant get hold of it!
13 November 2005 | by little_red_henSee all my reviews

I remember this film from way back, and have been looking everywhere for it ever since!I was so glad to see I am not alone in this pastime! It took me the first few years to get the name of it right!I liked the simple story of romance, and at first, failed to see what the story of the film was hiding! I enjoyed the music as I am a big Pogues fan, and I remember singing the songs for ages afterwards. I really would like to see this again. It has haunted me for years! I have searched high and low, and have been so pleased to find out the names of the actors, as until now, I have been unable to remember who was in it! (though I can see the faces in my head!) This was a totally unique film, and had a very thought provoking topic.
