Sunshine on Leith Reviews
my favourite movieš???
The film focuses on two returning soldiers and their tangled love and family lives, all to a backdrop of musical interludes.
The film shows the fantastic Edinburgh scenery in a way that Alex Salmond (SNP) would be proud.
I actually felt part way through the film that I was listening to a The Proclaimers album on a repeat loop. What happened?
The film ends with the casts own versions of perhaps the two greatest hits of The Proclaimers using tourists as random extras.
Definately not the worst film you are likely to watch but not my cup of tea.
It was based on the musical stage play of the same name. Did well in the English box office, but not that good in the outside. About two young army men return to the home after the service in Afghanistan and try to blend back in where they have left. Trouble in relationship and family issues, followed by going after the dream job across the sea, all come into play, solving all these puzzle brings the end to the movie.
Despite a result as I expected, still somehow I felt the movie was not bad at all. That is maybe because of the film's setting that takes place in the backdrop of the capital of Scotland and style of cool presentation with a moderate pace. The rest was good show by the all lead casts probably had a lift up a bit. Like I said it was about usual episodes that occur in a group of known to each other, but belong to different families and dreaming different future. So how the differing thoughts in mind repels and unites them all was told reasonably well.
