5.0 out of 5 stars Slow paced comedy that might not be for everyone., 12 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Local Hero [DVD] (DVD)
Anyone with a taste for incidental jokes that are there for you to see but not thrust in your face should like this film. It focuses heavily on character development rather than plot development but this works in it's favour, matching the sleepy nature of the scottish villiage featured. With the focus being placed so heavily on the characters you really get involved with the film and when the plot does certain things toward the end of the film it generates a lot of empathy for Mac (the main character). As several other reviewers mention, the soundtrack is fantastica and complements the film pefectly and the fact that the film's "theme" is called going home makes me well up.
I think the thing that makes this film as goot as it is is it's ending. Half the people who I have talked to about this film consider the ending to be warm and uplifting, the other half I've talked to and I myself consider it deeply sad. Give Local Hero a go and see what you think.
