This was the first film I immediately started rewatching after it was finished. It is slow and comfortable at first, building and revealing but when it has drawn you in, any human with a wandering heart should feel captivated. Truly one of the best films I have ever seen.
Brilliant comedy which never goes into whimsy and is full of great performances.
Packed full of memorable scenes from Reigert sitting in a fog bound car with Peter Capaldi and going to the dance at the village hall and seeing the Northen Lights.
Even though the film was made in the 80s it still feels fresh today a real Brit classic
A naive and simple programmatic tale. You see it all coming after 10 minutes : humanity vs money (or here, true-hearted-fisherman-that-can-look-at-the-stars vs lonely-sad-rich-guy-with-a-Porsche). Forsyth won't spare you a few cliches but in the end, "local hero" is modest and touching enough to make you book a flight to Scotland.
One of my favorite films ever made. It doesn't feel the need to make amazing scenes, it just becomes amazing; and without you even realizing until the incredibly powerful and representational ending.5/5
Wonderful, and, as Roscoe said, very moving and funny without getting sentimental. Full of little delights; to name two, the town trying to quietly leave the church in the background and the very ending. Beautiful.
