This film is masterful. In essence a comedy but drawing on despair and hope in equal measure. I was intrigued that the main characters included actors who were previously untrained. The experienced actors must have been a very positive influence on them as the effect is of genuine criminal mentality, poverty and desperation. Not the usual home counties actors putting on dreadful provincial accents. The filming is both beautiful and simple and captures the mood magnificently. For everyone but particularly if you like Scotland.
