An experience of love,
This review is from: A Blonde in Love [DVD] (DVD)
Bittersweet is a good word, used by a previous reviewer. This is a bittersweet film. There is certainly comedy (particularly in the cringe-inducing early set-piece at the dance) and yet it's never exactly funny, as the whole picture emerges. There are no real bad guys, but there are crossed wires, hurt feelings and the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) examples of state control. Nevertheless, it is hard not to be charmed by the characters, from the wide-eyed heroine to the awkwardly matchmaking boss and the bickering parents of the irresponsible Romeo.
The Second Run release is very good. No extras on the dvd, but an informative booklet and a very fine print of the film.
