Filled with colorful characters that seem real and a surprising sense of spontaneity, spurred in part by its backdrop. Director David MacKenzie has pulled off a movie with the kind of easy charm that most romcoms struggle with.
The final frames finally rouse a little 'movie magic' but for the bulk of the 80 minutes it takes to get there, this raucous, rambling mess finds its energy from some great music moments... and very little else.
Unlike most romantic comedies in which the couple-to-be are constantly kept apart, in You Instead they are literally cuffed together. It's an interesting inversion and thanks to the excellent leads, it works a treat
Improvisational and cold to the touch, the picture is a noble failure, capturing the musty rush of a music festival and all of its madness, with a dreary love story awkwardly wedged into the film, souring the atmosphere.
Shot on the quick during Scotland's famous T in the Park music festival and featuring a supporting cast of around 85,000 or so, the movie is filled with glorious bits of music and delectable touches of quiet romance that I found entrancing.
