  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


In this thoughtful drama about race, roots and cross-cultural love, Ken Loach is in an unusually romantic and non-political mode. The title comes from a Burns love poem, and in this 'Romeo and Juliet on the Clyde', Paul Laverty's script impressively depicts the cultural divide between a second-generation Pakistani man who falls in love with the young Irish Catholic woman who teaches music at his sister's school. Great acting and believable, intelligent filmmaking.
