This gentle comedy, set in the midst of Glasgow's ice cream wars, still resonates with its superbly observed characters.

Like most Forsyth films, Comfort and Joy is warm and gentle without being cloying or maudlin. And it somehow avoids off-putting levels of cynicism. Like its main character, Alan, it's just the right amount of not important.
