“Anything Bill Forsyth does is worth collecting. You will like some movies more than others, but theyu0026#39;re all gems – the antithesis of the Hollywood movie that has to come out of the screen and grab you, yank you. This is film making about people; this is a movie about the human spirit; there are elements of Fawlty Towers in here, the way certain plot elements gradually collide; viewers across the pond may feel bored, expecting something to u0026#39;happenu0026#39; in the sense they are used to; but Forsyth is the best there is for the human soul.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSee it – and collect it.”
