| Story & music link to make an excellent movie for both men & women
So-called 'budget' movie manages to tick almost all the right boxes. The Proclaimers' music is not always easy, but the cast make a good - sometimes excellent - stab at it. Good acting all round although casting might have been a tad more appropriate.

The storyline hangs together well, and gets better as it develops into 3 distinct strands. There are moments of comedy, high drama, and emotional romance-gone-wrong. It evokes different emotions and I noticed even grown men rubbing their eyes at bits. Surprisingly, not usually the same scenes which seemed to affect women. A touch of Men are from Mars perhaps; or just in touch with their feminine side.

Scenery and scene setting were excellent. The cityscape shots of Edinburgh were truly remarkable, although the director played havoc with Edinburgh's actual street directions. The finale, obviously filmed around Festival time, was great and worth the additional cost.

Go see it, then visit Edinburgh during the festival and 'enjoy' it again.
