Two soldiers return home to Edinburgh to resume their romantic and family lives.
During 'the chase' scene when Davy runs after Yvonne, there are 2 references (running down the steps and the car bonnet) to Trainspotting, another hugely successful film from Edinburgh.
When Ally drops off Liz at the bus stop on The Shore, she picks up the 42 bus. The 42 bus doesn't stop there.
The initial credits show the main characters in short outtakes from the film. The order is Peter Mullan, Jane Horrocks, George Mackay, Antonia Thomas, Freya Mavor, Kevin Guthrie, Jason Flemyng, Paul Brannigan, Sara Vickers, Michael Beat (as Michael 'Cuban' Keat) and John Spence (as 'Wee' John Spence'). This is followed by a listing of the major crew (director, etc,) on a background of the city of Leith in sunshine. Then the credits revert to the traditional scrolling form, starting with the cast listed in order of appearance.
The DVD contains the original ending, which was shot indoors, but was replaced at a cost of £500,000 by the ensemble ending shot in Edinburgh.
