This review is from: Comfort And Joy [DVD] (DVD)
Great Scot, Bill Forsyth cements his legacy as one of the British Isles truly great film directors with his Glaswegian classic, "Comfort & Joy". Everything about this film is a joy. It's also one of the great unsung Christmas films. Glasgow has never looked more magical and Bill Patterson is a fantastic unlikely lead. The film's themes deal with loneliness and heartbreak at christmas time. When Radio Disc Jockey Dickie Bird loses his girlfriend, he's all at sea. Until he becomes embroiled in a turf war between two rival ice cream companies. From the evocative soundtrack by Mark Knopfler to the cool, glacial cinematography depicting Glasgow at Christmas, this film is wholly original. It is one I keep going back to and I recommend it whole heartedly.
