others might not appreciate this movie but its my all time favourite
great film for all of you offbeat romantics - there must be a few of us out there

i got into his film in a pretty dark point in my life

but even tho im in a far happier situation lifewise nowadays its still my alltime favourite film

it might be unsophisticated in many ways but its brilliant in many others

simple lines like "who the f**k are you then"

and "bloody hippies" take on real comic moments in this film

if you get the opportunity WATCH IT

a simple but ultimately rewarding way to spend 120 mins

ps im perfectly sane even tho ive seen this over 150 times
